We have a range of products to assist you in getting your DVS vehicle permits.
All Heavy Goods Vehicles that are over 12 tonnes either entering or operating in Greater London will need to be in possession of a valid safety permit as part of the Direct Vision Standard (DVS).
The DVS scheme has been introduced by Transport for London (TFL) as a result of a number of collisions and fatalities involving Heavy Goods Vehicles in the Greater London area. The aim of the scheme is to improve safety for cyclists, pedestrians and motorcyclists within the Greater London area and is due to be introduced from 26th October 2020 and will operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Every vehicle will receive a permit which is ‘star rated’ and must be a minimum of one star. Three, four and five star vehicles will receive a 10 year permit, whereas one and two star rated vehicles will only receive permits until 2020.
Vehicles with a zero star rating can receive a permit until 2024 by installing an approved ‘Safe System’ to reduce the risk to other road users which is aligned with other scheme requirements such as FORS.
What safety equipment needs to be installed for a zero starred vehicle to receive a permit?
Centrad has a full range of camera systems, left turn alarms, monitors and side scanner units which can help your fleet become DVS compliant.
CENLive is a user friendly service supplied by Centrad to help you monitor your fleet in real time with full live / remote viewing of video footage and GPS tracking.
Our CENLive system also allows you to access you to also view and playback footage remotely from the vehicle, removing the requirement for having to wait for the vehicle to return back to depot and remove the hard drive. Reduces the hassle and time of plugging your DVR into your computer systems to retrieve data after an incident.
