Fwd: Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency Daily Digest Bulletin


Moving On

Read all the latest blog posts on the Moving On blog.

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) won an international road safety award on 8 December 2015 for its guide on load securing. In this blog, Peter Hearn, DVSA's Head of Policy Development and Product talks about the awards event and how the guide was produced.

Between June and October 2015, DVSA published a series of Individual Vehicle Approval (IVA) 'help to get a pass' guides. We've done this to help give you a better chance of meeting the required standards and getting a first time pass at an IVA inspection.


We're transforming our approach to enforcement

We're currently working towards transforming our approach to enforcement which gives recognition to compliant operators as well as focusing on the seriously or serially non-compliant.


PSV restricted licences: the dos and don'ts

Restricted PSV applicants and operators are coming under greater scrutiny by Traffic Commissioners because of fair competition rules. If you're running vehicles under a restricted PSV operator's licence, there are a number of standards you need to meet to keep your licence.


Freight enforcement partnership helping to make London's roads safer

DVSA has joined in a partnership with Transport for London, Metropolitan Police and City of London Police with the aim of reducing the number of unsafe lorry drivers and operators on London's roads.


The Highway Code is now easier to use online

Based on research undertaken with people who use The Highway Code, DVSA has made it easier to use and share from GOV.UK. This will improve people's knowledge and change their behaviour on the road for the better and, hopefully, for life.


Did you know that nearly 90% of operator licence applications sent to the Central Licensing Office (CLO) in Leeds are incomplete? The traffic commissioners and their staff have made improvements to application forms and provided clearer guidance to avoid incomplete applications.
