DVS 2024

The Direct Vision Standard (DVS)

Compliance made easy.

Direct Vision Standard 2024

  • The Direct Vision Standard (DVS) is aimed at increasing the safety of HGVs over 12 tonnes entering or operating in Greater London.
  • From October 2024, a minimum 3-star rating (currently 1-star) will be required for HGVs to continue operating within the enforcement area.
  • A PSS Kit (Progressive Safe System) is required for any HGVs who do not meet the 3-star rating from manufacturer.
  • Permits granted following October 2024 will be valid until the 28th of October, 2030. Learn more on our latest 2024 Progressive Safe System Kit.

Exeros have both rigid and articulated vehicle compatible PSS kits to help fleet operators with DVS 2024.


Why the Direct Vision Standard?

Official data reveals that HGVs in London are responsible for 63% of cyclist fatalities and 25% of pedestrian fatalities in collisions.

The 2024 update of the Direct Vision Standard (DVS) aims to level-up the requirements raising the minimum DVS vehicle star rating from one star to three stars, and in doing so working towards eliminating road fatalities by 2041.

Introduced by Transport for London (TFL) in 2019 as part of the road to Vision Zero Scheme, the DVS scheme measures a driver’s view from the windows of their HGV cab. A star rating between zero (poor) and five (excellent) stars is granted, indicating the level of risk for pedestrians and cyclists travelling in close proximity to the vehicle or better, in the HGV’s blind spot.

All HGVs travelling in and out of greater London need to have a Direct Vision Permit.

If your vehicle does NOT meet the required star rating, a DVS Progressive Safe System is required to be granted a Permit.

**The DVS Progressive Safe System is a number of vehicle safety technologies that is retrofit on a vehicle in order to increase its indirect vision and meet the necessary rating.

We have successfully fitted thousands of DVS Kits since its inception, with the majority of operators requesting more tech.
