Tuesday 11 April 2023

Logistics UK welcomes DVSA’s vision to 2030 published last week, setting out how DVSA will keep Britain moving, safely and sustainably. Phil Lloyd, Head of Engineering Policy at Logistics UK, comments:


“Logistics UK welcomes DVSA’s publication of its vision strategy and is delighted to see points highlighted by Logistics UK within conversations with the agency supported, such as maintaining the increased numbers of vocational HGV tests. Also within the vision document is the recognition that autonomous vehicles will play a much larger role moving forward, and it is therefore encouraging that DVSA is already thinking about how it will reach its goal of road safety within this new environment. Logistics UK also welcomes the forward-thinking approach to using datasets to identify root causes of issues to improve compliance and looks forward to continuing to support DVSA deliver its vision.”
