There have been no statutory changes in the last 5 years to the requirements regarding vehicles and locations. The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency meets regularly with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) to discuss a range of matters, including the requirements for its defence contractors. The MoD is closely involved in an on-going review of the suitability of armoured vehicles for category H driving tests.
