New serious incident reporting form
A new online reporting form designed to make it easier for bus and coach operators to report serious incidents to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has been introduced.
DVSA says it has worked with the PSV industry on the new PSV112 form to make it easier for operators to report an incident and help DVSA manage the case.
Operators will receive confirmation that the report has been submitted and DVSA will aim to be in contact within two working days to confirm if the vehicle needs to be inspected.
DVSA Director of Enforcement, Marian Kitson, said: “DVSA’s priority is to protect everyone from unsafe drivers and vehicles.
“Bus and coach operators must report serious incidents to us immediately so we can help prevent further incidents where possible. If in doubt report an incident anyway.
“We will take action against operators who fail to make a report where damage or failure risk passenger or road safety.”
