DVSA ARE NOW ACCEPTING NEW APPLICATIONS TO SET UP ATF’S

Previously the DVSA had put a temporary suspension on accepting new ATF applications, to focus their efforts on supporting existing ATF’s. However, as part of the Heavy Vehicle Testing Review, The Department for Transport has recommended that the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) should consider allowing more ATF’s to open. This suggestion has now been accepted and the DVSA have announced that they are officially accepting new ATF applications on if a proposed ATF:
  • Is a move of premises for an existing ATF, but it is within the same geographic area
  • Already has ‘approval in principle’ from DVSA.
  •  Is in an area with a substantial shortage of ATFs, currently Orkney and mainland Highlands of Scotland.
  •  Is in Southern England and is offering testing of fully laden fuel tankers (this is often known as a full pet. reg. site) or ADR testing.

 Will significantly improve the service to heavy vehicle operators, by reduced journey times or other efficiency benefits. Applications made under this criteria will be prioritised based on the certainty and scale of improvement in service the proposed ATF can offer
