Be compliant with London's Direct Vision Standard, the latest legislation based on a ‘Direct Vision star rating’ indicating the visibility the driver has from the cab in relation to other road users. All HGV's over 12 tonnes currently require a safety permit to drive into Greater London - regardless of their star rating.


From 28th October, 2024, the direct vision standard is changing. Your truck will need to be 3-star rated or above to obtain a safety permit, otherwise you will need to fit a progressive safety system.

What is the progressive safe system?

The Progressive Safe System is a series of vehicle safety measures to improve the overall safety of your truck and reduce the risks to vulnerable road users. Enhancing the original safe system introduced in 2020, it is made of 7 key components; camera monitoring system, audible vehicle manoeuvring warning, moving off information system, blind spot information system, external pictorial sticker, side under-run protection and class V and VI mirrors.
