Direct Vision Standard

If you are a Transport or Fleet Manager overseeing a fleet of trucks over 12 tonnes in gross vehicle weight, Direct Vision Standard (DVS) - which comes into full effect in October - will impact you and your business.

The DVS rating measures how much an HGV driver can see through their cab windscreen & windows, and it indicates a level of risk to vulnerable road users (VRUs). 

It forms part of the Mayor of London’s ‘Vision Zero’ plan to “eliminate all deaths and serious injury by 2041 in London”.

If you have any DVS-related questions please get in touch with our knowledgeable team.
