VOSA’s new agency name DVSA uncovered


VOSA and DSA have now merged to become the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA)

In June the Department for Transport announced that VOSA and the DSA would merge to form a new agency. This decision was made following the motoring services strategy consultation, and is a demonstration of the government’s commitment to put customers and businesses at the heart of its services.

A new agency with responsibility for maintaining vehicle standards was launched on 28 November 2013 as the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).

The new agency, which employs 4,600 people throughout the UK, has replaced VOSA and the DSA with responsibilities for setting, testing and enforcing driver and vehicle standards in Great Britain.
