Direct Vision Standard and HGV Safety Permit

All vehicles over 12 tonnes and operating in Greater London will need a permit by 2021.

DIRECT VISION WILL BE LIVE IN GREATER LONDON BY 2021 FOR VEHICLES OVER 12 TONNES BANNING VEHICLES RATED 0 STARS.

All vehicles over 12 tonnes and operating in Greater London will need a permit by 2021.

Your vehicle will need to meet the minimum requirement of 1 star to automatically be granted a permit. If your vehicle does not meet this, you can still be eligible for a permit by applying for the Safe System.

The Safe System is a specification, similar to that of FORS silver and CLOCS, that requires devices for indirect vision to be fitted to the vehicle to improve driver visibility.

UTSVIEW PRODUCTS FOR THE SAFE SYSTEM

  • A camera monitor system fitted to the nearside
  • A proximity sensor system with audible driver alert to warn the driver to the presence of a vulnerable road user on the nearside, such as a cyclist
  • An audible vehicle manoeuvring warning

Fortunately at UTS Fleet, we can offer expert advice to help you to become compliant with all specifications.
