The DVS aims to improve road safety in the capital by eliminating HGVs’ blind spots and trucks will be given a rating from zero to five stars.
TfL is proposing an associated safety permit scheme for those vehicles that have retrofitted a safe system, and this latest consultation focuses on the safety permit process.
Comments are invited on: the process for obtaining a DVS star rating; requirements of the safe system; the permit application and administration process; and the enforcement and appeals process.
Subject to final consultation, permits will be issued from October this year. Operators will be able to apply for a permit via an online portal on TfL’s website.
