Direct Vision Standard (DVS) Are you ready?

From 26th October 2020 all Trucks with a gross weight over 12 tonnes will require a HGV Safety Permit to enter London.

Through the TfL Direct Vision Standard (DVS) scheme vehicles will be awarded a star rating from 0 – 5 based on the amount of direct vision the driver has through the windows when seated in the cab.

Indirect vision aides (known as Safe Systems) such as cameras, proximity sensors and audible warning alarms may then be required to improve the view the driver has, to protect vulnerable road users.

This is where backwatch come in! With over 20 years in the commercial vehicle safety industry we can work with you to insure DVS Safe System compliance.
