DSA and VOSA to Merge

From 2014, the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) and Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) are to be merged into a single agency.

The Department for Transport announced the initiative after a Motoring Services Strategy consultation on improving the delivery of motoring services by the four executive agencies – VOSA, DSA, the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency and the Vehicle Certification Agency.

Stephen Hammond, Roads Minister, announced the DSA–VOSA merger saying, ‘We need to make sure that we continue to keep pace with customers’ needs and deliver services in a way which is both convenient and cost effective.

‘These changes will put customers at the heart of the services they rely on and allow for a more coherent approach to service delivery. By bringing testing and standards services into a single organisation we will make life easier for customers and potentially reduce the fees we charge.'

Jonathan Mosley, sales and marketing director at E-Training World, commented, “If it results in cost savings and improved efficiencies for fleet operators, this will come as welcome news.

“At E-Training World, however, we would like to see a portion of the savings made by such integrations, mergers and streamlining re-invested into making our roads and drivers safer and there is little evidence of the Government having a clear plan for achieving this.”
