DVSA urges operators to read updated Road Worthiness Guide

DVSA is calling on operators to read its updated Guide to Maintaining Roadworthiness, which includes a range of new information on how operators must ensure their fleets are fit for the road, writes Carol Millett.

The updated guide published today (19 April) provides the industry with best practice advice on operator and driver responsibilities to help make sure their vehicles are safe to be on the road and has been updated in partnership with the Traffic Commissioners and trade associations.

New advice in this latest version of the guide includes the introduction of Light Goods Vehicles operator licencing for international use; updated advice on towing another company’s trailer and non-UK registered trailers; the introduction of declaration from the repairer confirming that the vehicle is roadworthy if the safety inspection report is not immediately available; and the introduction of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).
