HGV roadworthiness standards continue to improve

Latest DVSA figures show further improvements in the roadworthiness and traffic compliance of lorries on British roads.

DVSA carries out random 'fleet compliance checks' each year to determine the roadworthiness and traffic compliance of HGVs, trailers and PSVs.

Over 9 out of 10 GB lorries inspected in fleet compliance checks last year were given a clean bill of health; 9.3% of GB lorries were found to have mechanical faults, down from 10.2% in 2013/14.

Compliance for GB trailers has also improved, with more than 9 out of 10 trailers inspected meeting the required standards. Only 9.8% were found to have mechanical faults in 2014/15, down from 12.5% the previous year.
