What is the Direct Vision Standard?
The Direct Vision Standard measures how much an HGV driver can see directly through their cab windows. This indicates the level of risk to vulnerable road users, such as people walking and cycling, near the vehicle.
The Direct Vision Standard and HGV safety permit for HGVs is part of the Mayor of London’s Vision Zero plan to eliminate all deaths and serious injuries on London’s transport network by 2041. Source: TFL
What Vehicles Require a Direct Vision Standard Safety Permit?
All lorries over 12 tonnes entering or operating in Greater London need to hold a valid HGV safety permit before using the area to avoid receiving a penalty charge.
Direct Vision Standard Penalty Charge
A Direct Vision Standard penalty charge is £550, £274 if paid within 14 days.
Making Your Vehicle Fully Compliance
To make your vehicle fully compliant and apply for a permit as a zero star rated vehicle, you need to fit your vehicle with all the safety equipment to improve indirect vision, and help drivers see near the vehicle. The minimum equipment required is:
Class V and VI mirrors
A fully operational camera monitoring system
A sensor system with driver alerts to warn road users of intended manoeuvres
An audible vehicle manoeuvring warning for left turns (or right turns if the vehicle is left-hand drive)
Warning signage to minimise the physical impact of a hazard
