Direct vision and road safety
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.
HGV safety permit and requirements
Whether or not the operator considers the vehicle to meet the standards, all lorries over 12 tonnes (GVW) entering or operating in Greater London need to hold a valid HGV safety permit before using the area to avoid receiving a PCN.
The HGV safety permit scheme covers most of Greater London and is in operation 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
Applying for a permit is free of charge.
For more information about the scheme, you can view a map of where it operates or read the HGV safety permit guidance for operators entering London document on the link below:
‘Wear and tear’ is the result of normal usage. However, specific events, damage and collisions are not included as ‘wear and tear’. You can be charged if damage has to be rectified or specific items need to be replaced.
