Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, DVSA have provided temporary instructions for the removal of prohibitions for HGVs and PSVs.
Any HGVs and PSVs which have been allowed to continue their journey after an inspection by the DVSA will have to follow these instructions.
1. Read the prohibition notice carefully.
2. Ensure all defects on the prohibition notice are rectified.
3. Ensure the vehicle and/or trailer is clear of all defects and is fit for the road.
4. You will need to provide a vehicle and or trailer inspection report, post-dating the prohibition notice declaring that the vehicle or trailer is roadworthy.
5. You will also need to provide evidence of the repairs.
6. Evidence of all repairs and the inspection report should be emailed to email@example.com to request the removal of a prohibition notice.
7. Evidence of repairs maybe in the form of workshop bill/invoice and/or parts bill/invoice and/or accompanied by photographs of the completed repairs.
8. If the evidence of your inspection and repairs is accepted, you will receive an email confirming the prohibition has been removed, you will also receive a copy of the removal notice in the post.
9. If evidence of inspection and/or repairs is not accepted, you may need to submit additional evidence, where a further request for removal of a prohibition notice will need to be submitted, in these cases, please refer to instruction 6.
These temporary instructions shall remain in place until further notice.
It remains to be an offence to use a vehicle on the road while a prohibition notice is in force.
