    What is the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA)?


    What is the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA)?

    The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (otherwise known as DVSA) has replaced two former agencies within the Department of Transport. These former agencies were known as the DSA (Driving Standards Agency) and VOSA (Vehicle and Operator Services). All the duties undertaken by each agency will now be handled by the new agency.

    These duties include taking bookings for both the theory and the practical parts of the driving test. They also include registration for ADIs (approved driving instructors) and other types of checks and services related to drivers and vehicles of various kinds. The chances are you will have a reason to come into contact with the agency at one time or another.

    Could you claim compensation if someone else has caused an accident?

    Every day on the roads there are people who are involved in accidents. A large number of these accidents are suffered by people who did nothing wrong, but simply found themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time. For example you may drive onto a roundabout and have right of way in doing so, but someone may shoot out of a turning in front of you and crash into your car. Even though the accident is their fault it will still have consequences for you.

    This is why it is worth taking proper legal advice about whether you can make a claim for compensation in circumstances such as this. Asking a professional injury compensation lawyer whether you have the right to make this type of claim is the first and most important step to consider taking. The law states there is a three-year period during which you can consider bringing a claim against the person responsible for causing an accident that you were injured in.
