TfL have announced a 90 day grace period.
If by 1st March you have been unable to fit DVS equipment on a vehicle, you can get a permit by providing evidence that you have made arrangements to do so by 1st June.
ACSS can provide you all the required documentation with details of your DVS fitting appointment which can then be submitted to DVSGracePeriod@TfL.gov.uk
TfL will review the request and send written confirmation of the outcome. Once your Safe System equipment has been fitted, you must follow the DVS Permit Application process.
You must take action before 1 March 2021. Operators informing TfL of a delay after this date will not be eligible for the grace period.
