Direct Vision Standard (DVS)

HomeVehicle TrackingCamerasDirect Vision Standard (DVS)

Are you ready for the Direct Vision Standard? Starting in March 2021, ALL vehicles over 12 tonne GWT that enter London need to be DVS Compliant. Fleet operators that are not compliant risk a £550 fine per day.

The standard is focused on safety so non-compliant fleets will be at a higher risk of seriously injuring or killing a pedestrian or cyclist, should an incident occur!

To be fully DVS compliant you will need to ensure you have adequate mirrors, signage along with a fully operational camera monitoring system combined with audible vehicle maneuvering alerts.

With many HGV fleets consisting of different types and ages of vehicles, it can be difficult and time consuming to research which DVS elements are required for each vehicle!

To take away all the difficulty and confusion surrounding DVS, Ctrack is offering a FREE DVS compliance check, the check will deliver expert advice on the exact DVS requirements for your fleet. The DVS standard is up and running now! It will be enforced from March 2021, but don’t leave it until the last minute!

Video solutions that support DVS (Direct Vision Standard) and FORS (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme)

A number of options are available to vehicle operators, combining the latest internal and external cameras, mobile digital video recorders (DVRs). These solutions are suitable for urban transport, 360o internal and external protection and reversing safety requirements, while bespoke solutions using DVR units for both four and eight cameras can be tailored to meet precise needs.

In particular, our FORS (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme) solution is made up of a near side and off side camera, a rear camera and a 7-inch colour monitor with a choice of DVR unit. The in-cab monitor shows a live view to the driver from the respective camera when either the left or right indicator is flicked on or reverse gear engaged.


In addition, a side detection system using ultrasonic sensors provides warning not only for the driver to adjust their manoeuvre but also to make any adjacent cyclists aware of a turning vehicle. Meanwhile, a front corner detection system is also available to drive down costly repair bills and vehicle downtime from low speed bumps and scrapes.

Our range of external cameras includes models with IP67, IP69 and IP69K enclosure rating including robust steel casings along with aviation-style cabling and secure screw type connectors that achieve high levels of performance and protection. In addition, remote health check, using a wifi network at a depot or base, alerts of any potential problems to avoid unnecessary vehicle downtime and any loss of footage.
