What is Direct vision standard? 


The Direct Vision Standard (DVS) is the first legislation of its kind. From 26th October 2020, all goods vehicles over 12 tonnes will require a permit to drive into Greater London, including vehicles from outside of the UK, if their vehicle falls short of the required Direct Vision Standard (DVS) star rating.


Enforced by Transport for London (TfL), the legislation is based on a ‘star rating’ indicating how much a driver can see from the cab in relation to other road users.


The vehicle manufacturer will issue a star rating for your vehicle. This rating (0-5) is based on how the vehicle left the production line and will not take into account any aftermarket safety systems that have been fitted.


HGVs that do not meet the minimum requirement of 1 star need to comply with the Safe System which requires the installation of extra devices for indirect vision (similar to FORS & CLOCS specifications) to alert drivers to vulnerable road users who are in a vehicle’s blind spot. Complying with the Safe System will not alter the vehicle’s star rating but will permit you to drive into Greater London.

 What devices are required to comply with DVS? 


The following devices are required to comply with DVS:


-Class V mirror fitted to the nearside of the vehicle


-Class VI mirror fitted to the front of the vehicle


-Side under-run protection fitted to both sides of the vehicle except where this is impractical or proves to be impossible. See TfL website for exemptions.


-External pictorial stickers and markings shall we displayed on vehicles to warn vulnerable road users of the hazards around the vehicle


-A sensor system that alerts the driver to the presence of a vulnerable road user fitted to the nearside of the vehicle


-Audible vehicle manoeuvring warning to warn vulnerable road users when a vehicle is turning left


-A fully operational camera monitoring system fitted to the nearside of the vehicle


What is the difference between FORS and DVS standard? 


Four years ago, Transport for London (TfL) announced the introduction of Direct Vision Standard (DVS), which came into effect on 26th October 2020. If you are a business with HGVs over 12 tonnes operating in (or travelling into) Greater London, you will have a responsibility to hold a safety permit to help reduce the risk of serious injury or death to pedestrians and cyclists in the capital. This permit is based on how much the driver can see from the cab.  


FORS is a voluntary accreditation scheme that aims to raise the level of quality within fleet operations. To qualify for FORS accreditation, fleet operators must meet the minimum standards of fuel efficiency, fuel safety, vehicle emissions and improved operations. By doing this, FORS aims to encourage and incentivise the safest and most sustainable approaches, so that fleet operators can be safer, smarter and greener in their commercial operations.


Further differences are highlighted in the below table:



Which level of FORS offers the same as the DVS requirement? 


FORS Silver is the equivalent and more of DVS. FORS Bronze does not for vehicles operating in Greater London only. FORS Silver is a higher spec than DVS
