Report a lorry, bus or coach driver or company
Today (16 September 2019), the DVSA has 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.
They want to use this intelligence and evidence 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
using vehicles that are not safe to drive (unroadworthy)
using emission cheat devices
carrying dangerous or hazardous goods without permission
driving an excessively smoky lorry or bus
You can report a lorry, bus or coach driver or the company running the vehicles (a ‘vehicle operator’) to DVSA if you think they’re breaking safety rules or conditions of their driving or operator licence.
There’s a different process to report other crime, such as suspected drink-driving, speeding and driving while disqualified.
You can make a report anonymously - you do not have to give your name or contact details unless you want to.
If you call or write anonymously:
you will never be asked for your name or to provide contact details
your call will not be traced
you will not have to make a statement or be called as a witness
you will not have to appear in court
