A safety permit will be required for all heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) over the gross weight of 12 tonnes to enter Greater London. This is part of the Mayor of London’s plan to eliminate deaths and serious injuries on London’s transport network by 2041.
In order to help safeguard all road users especially vulnerable users that are not in a vehicle such as pedestrians and cyclists, the Direct Vision Standard will measure the drivers’ vision from an HGV cab through the windows.
DVS star rating and Safe System
All HGVs operating in Greater London will have to hold a safety permit (applying is free). If the vehicle meets the DVS minimum star (0 to 5) rating of 1 or above the permit will be granted. Any HGV without a permit may face a charge of £550 (reduced to £275 if paid within 14 days).
Technology from 6ST will enable you to gain your DVS permit from £195.
The 6ST visual Direct Vision aids the driver by having additional cameras (2, 4 or 5) around the cab and trailer connected to a monitor in-cab. In additionally this system records all that the cameras see.
Side Proximity Sensors, Low-Speed Trigger & Turn Trigger Module and Speaking Alarm are also available. Click here or images below for more information
