How long does the permit last?
The duration of the HGV Safety Permit depends on whether your vehicle meets the minimum DVS requirement or if it was granted subject to a Safe System.
The permits for vehicles rated One or Two star or those that have qualified on the safe system will expire at the end of 25th October 2024.
Beyond this date, these vehicles will need to reapply for a new permit after fitting a "Progressive Safe System" - although this is subject to a TfL consultation in 2022.
The permits of vehicles rated Three, Four or Five stars will expire at the end of 25th October 2030 or ten years after the application date if granted later than 26 October 2020 - whichever works out as the later date.
