Interaction with the DVSA (formerly VOSA) can be worrying and have an impact on your business. In addition to conducting annual testing of lorries, buses and trailers through authorised testing facilities (ATFs) and goods vehicle testing stations (GVTS), the DVSA also conduct routine and targeted checks on vehicles, drivers and operators ensuring compliance with road safety legislation and environmental standards. They can also be involved in conducting post-collision investigations.
As a result they conduct:
- Roadside stops and inspections
- Visits to operating centres
- Interviews under caution
- Enforcement action
If you find yourself facing action by the DVSA our road transport law specialists can help. Call us on 0203 816 9274.
