VOSA and DSA to merge


VOSA and DSA to merge

Today, Roads Safety Minister Stephen Hammond announced that the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) and Driving Standards Agency (DSA), are to merge into a single agency which will bring together their testing and standards services.

Alastair Peoples, VOSA Chief Executive, will become Chief Executive for the two agencies and will oversee their strategic operations towards a full merger over the next year 

Rosemary Thew, DSA Chief Executive, has also announced that she will be stepping down and leaving the Civil Service on 30 June 2013. 

Commenting on the announcement, Alastair Peoples said: 
“I welcome the opportunity of working with both agencies to bring together the vital road safety services we provide. 
The aim of combining the two agencies is to remove duplication of functions, improve efficiency and give our customers a simpler framework of agencies in which to work with. I will now begin the process of working with staff and stakeholders to develop proposals to combine the work of VOSAand DSA. 
We will continue to provide a quality service and the same level of professionalism while taking forward this work”. 

No impact on our services

The changes won’t impact on:
  • the services you use that are provided by VOSA and DSA, eg vehicle tests 
  • progress of other ongoing reform programmes 

Better and more convenient services

The reforms are an outcome of the recent motoring services strategy consultation
They’re designed to offer motorists and businesses better and more convenient services, while making sure that road safety and first class customer service remain a top priority.
