MOTORING SERVICES STRATEGY: DEPARTMENT FOR TRANSPORT
This consultation from the Department for Transport seeks views on
reforms to the four agencies under its control: Vehicle Operator
Services Agency (VOSA), Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA),
Driving Standards Agency (DSA) and the Vehicle Certification Agency
In the RMI response, it was recommended that the work of the 4 agencies
is rationalised, in order to avoid duplication of duties by multiple
agencies. RMI agree with the proposal to expand online digital services,
to provide a more efficient service for customers. However, alternative
methods should be preserved in order to cater for the wide demographic
of customer. Under this initiative, RMI has called for the abolition of
tax discs to relieve administrative burdens to the customer and reduce
the cost to DVLA.
Finally, RMI call for a increase in Authorised Testing Facilities (ATFs)
in order to allow operators of HGVs flexible access to testing
services. RMI are of the view that privately owned sites should be able
to employ their own testers, to minimise delays and decrease the travel
time to find a testing location.
