insurefit specialise in the installation of safety and camera equipment to all heavy goods vehicles. With increasing demands being placed on hauliers to protect their drivers, vehicle contents and the general public, we are able to supply complete CCTV and side-scan safety systems to allow HGV operators to comply with current regulations. All our installations will be approved to fit in line with DVS and all FORS requirements.
We work with hauliers and HGV dealers to install the required equipment to allow your vehicles to fall in line with the required standards to enter the capital
From 26th October 2020, it will be an offence for any vehicle over 12 tons to enter London without the minimum required equipment.
The scheme was created to improve the safety of all road users, particularly vulnerable road users like pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists. HGVs are a major contributor to fatalities, in 2016, 23% of pedestrian and 50% of cyclist deaths involved an HGV, despite HGVs making up only 4% of road miles in London. (TFL, 2018).
The Direct Vision Standard (DVS) rates HGVs which are over 12 tons from 0 Stars (lowest) to 5 stars (highest). The Direct Vision Standard is based on the measurement of the driver’s vision through the windows of the HGV cab.
*All European left-hand side drivers need the equivalent for the right-hand side blind spot.
What happens if I don’t have a DVS permit by 26th October 2020?
A hefty fine will be given to both the operator and the driver if the vehicle enters greater London without a DVS safety permit after 26th October 2020.
One and two star-rated vehicle permits will be valid until 2024. Three to five-star-rated vehicle safety permits will be valid for 10 years from the date the DVS safety permit was granted.
Parksafe Blind Spot Kits when used with Class V and VI mirrors and approved side under-run protection, will achieve a Three Star rating, ensuring the DVS permit is valid for 10 years.
If you require a Five Star rating then additional modification of the vehicle’s windows necessary, to give the driver unhindered vision from the cab to the roadside.

Great service & knowledge. Insurefit were contacted after we had had several key fob cloning thefts on our transit vans. Once Insurefit listened to our requirements we then went ahead with the recommended (insert lock type) which has resolved the problem. Our vans are now 100% secure and no further thefts.
Rang up the same day my van was broken into. Insurfit understand when you need a quick 1st class service. They delivered,I would recommend this company without hesitation.
Such a good comprehensive and honest service took my van to be fitted with deadlocks and armour plates after a robbery and really pleased with the results!
