How many HGVs operating in London do you currently estimate to be achieving each of the ratings, from zero stars to five stars, of your Direct Vision Standard (DVS)?

Transport for London (TfL) estimates that 0 star vehicles represent 29 per cent of the London population of Heavy Goods Vehicles over 12 tonnes gross vehicle weight (Category N3), vehicles with a 1-2 star rating represent 43 per cent, and vehicles rated 3-5 stars represent 28 per cent of London N3 vehicles, based on work undertaken in April 2018 by AECOM on behalf of TfL.

TfL is in the process of compiling a database of vehicles that fall into each star rating boundary, based on rating information provided by the vehicle manufacturers. The launch of this database is planned for later this year, and will enable a breakdown of vehicle numbers against each star rating.
