DVSA vision to 2030

20 Apr 2023

DVSA launched its vision to 2030, setting out what needs to be done to keep Britain moving safely and sustainably.

The vision focuses on outcomes that help make a real and lasting difference to everyone living in Great Britain.

It will guide work to:

  • reduce the numbers of people killed and seriously injured on our roads, which in turn reduces pressure on the NHS
  • help people to use new connected and autonomous mobility technology safely, giving people more independence
  • improve public transport services, enabling more and better access to work and education
  • help the road haulage industry become more efficient and keep supply chains resilient, helping everyone with the cost of living
  • help to create 38,000 jobs in the self-driving vehicle industry
  • help to end the UK’s contribution to climate change by becoming net zero
  • help reduce air pollution from road transport, as human-made air pollution causes between 28,000 and 36,000 deaths every year

By 2030

There will be rapid change between now and the end of the decade. By 2030:

  • the sale of new fully petrol or diesel cars will have been banned
  • 10 million battery electric vehicles are expected on the roads
  • 1 in 8 new cars sold could have self-driving features
  • half of all journeys in towns and cities will be made by walking or cycling

Loveday Ryder, DVSA Chief Executive, said:

“Whatever your stake in DVSA, we want to set out what the DVSA plans to achieve on behalf of our customers and stakeholders. That’s whether you work for us or in partnership with us, or you are responsible for holding us to account.”

“Our strategic plan to 2025 and vision to 2030 set out our ambitions and the challenges we set ourselves to achieve our vision to 2030 of keeping Britain moving, safely and sustainably.”

“The transformative plans in these documents demonstrate our drive for more efficient services. We will always keep looking for ways to build on this to support the government’s ambitions.”
