Maintaining Roadworthiness for Commercial Vehicles (Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency)


The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has produced a Guide to explain the
responsibilities and systems involved in maintaining vehicles in a roadworthy condition,
regardless of operating conditions, fleet size or vehicle type. The procedures and systems
explained in the Guide are useful for operators, drivers and all those who are responsible for
operating, maintaining or providing commercial goods and passenger carrying vehicles. The
general principles apply equally for light goods and passenger vehicles below the operator
licensing thresholds and for vehicles that are otherwise exempt.
It is not enough to rely on a maintenance system alone, because this cannot ensure that
vehicles are roadworthy. To ensure best practice, you will need to combine good quality
maintenance practices and skills with supervision and effective management of the system.
