TfL confirms conditional grace period for Direct Vision Standard for 1 & 2* rated vehicles

25 Nov 2023 12:54 | Anonymous

After liaising with Transport for London regarding the Direct Vision Standard 2024 changes (expressing the difficulties members are facing as a result of the upcoming changes) TfL has confirmed to the association that there is a grace period that runs from 28th Oct 2024 to midnight on 31st Jan 2025 for 1 & 2* rated vehicles.  Details on how to apply will become available next year, but essentially, we understand that if an operator can prove they have booked a vehicle to have equipment fitted with a fitter, that is sufficient to be granted the use of the grace period.

The HTA is working with TfL on exemptions for STGO vehicles and we anticipate a further announcement will be made in due course.
