The Direct Vision Standard
In 2016 the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, launched the Direct Vision Standard (DVS) for HGVs. It was created to improve the safety of all road users.
From 26th October 2020 all HGVs over 12 tonnes entering and operating in Greater London will need to hold a safety permit if their vehicle falls short of the Direct Vision Standard star ratings. To obtain these ratings operators must contact their manufacturers as no central list has yet been created. Each vehicle type / model per manufacturer will have a star system. The DVS rates HGVs from 0 (lowest) to 5 (highest), based on how much a HGV driver can see directly through their cab windows.
The Safety Permit system which will be issued by Transport for London (TFL) is now being referred to in the guidance document as ‘the safe system’. It consists of; class v and class VI mirrors, a side view camera system and a sensor system with audible alert fitted to the front and nearside of the vehicle.
Is the Direct Vision Standard a legal requirement?
Unlike previous specifications that have been self regulatory in the industry including FORS, CLOCS and Van Excellence, under the Direct Vision Standard it would be illegal to operate in London without a permit or to breach permit conditions.
