Need to hire a truck that weighs over 12-tonnes in gross weight? Does your construction project take place in central London?
In that case the driver will need to meet the DVS (Direct Vision Standard). This is a requirement for lorry drivers handling vehicles over 12 tonnes in grosse weight working in London. It has been designed by Transport For London (TFL) to improve the safety of vulnerable road users.
It’s hoped this intuition will eliminate road deaths and serious injuries in London caused by construction vehicles by 2041. It came into force in October of 2020.
The requirement is mainly concerned with the design of the vehicle, and it’s only concerned with vehicles used inside the M25. If a vehicle is not DVS compliant then you could be liable to a £500 fine.
