How to report unsafe lorry, bus or coach drivers to DVSA

17 September 2019

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), have published new guidance on GOV.UK to help people report lorry, bus or coach drivers and companies to DVSA if they think they're breaking safety rules.

This intelligence and evidence will be used to take strong action against law breakers who are a danger to other road users.

This new guidance will make it easier for people to report quality information to us about things such as:

  • breaking drivers’ hours rules
  • overloading vehicles
  • using vehicles that are not safe to drive (unroadworthy)
  • using emission cheat devices
  • carrying dangerous or hazardous goods without permission
