Enforcement Date Change for TfL Direct Vision Standard.

We previously told all our customers that From 26th October 2020 all Trucks with a gross weight over 12 tonnes will require a HGV Safety Permit to enter London. Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic it has now been confirmed that the enforcement date has been delayed to give companies extra time to comply.

The earliest expected enforcement date for Direct Vision Standard is stated as 1st March 2021 – this however will be confirmed by October 2020.

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.
