DVSA launches new Strategic Plan to 2025 and Vision to 203

The DVSA has unveiled its Strategic Plan to 2025 and Vision to 2030. These aim to make progress towards doing five things:
• Make roads safer
• Improve services for DVSA customers
• Make road transport greener and healthier
• Harness the potential of new technology and data
• Grow and level up the economy

DVSA Chief Executive, Loveday Ryder, said: “Our Strategic Plan to 2025 and Vision to 2030 set out our ambitions and the challenges we set ourselves to achieve our Vision to 2030 of keeping Britain moving, safely and sustainably. The transformative plans in these documents demonstrate our drive for more efficient services. We will always keep looking for ways to build on this to support the government’s ambitions.”

Roads Minister Richard Holden said: “DVSA are right to be working to tackle the driving test backlog, boost road safety, and make transport more sustainable and accessible. It’s important to see the next steps they have in place and I look forward to them delivering for people right across the country.”

Hayley Pells, Policy Manager at the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI), added:
“The IMI welcomes this vision for better connected, safer and sustainable transport for a more levelled economy. Key to the success of such a vision is greater road user confidence which can only be achieved with sustained investment in the skills, particularly for the new automotive technologies including driver assistance systems and new drivetrains. The IMI welcomes the opportunity to continue working with the DVSA to ensure skills training and qualifications are fit for purpose for sustainable, connected, and safe transport across the UK.”
