Have your say on VOSA fees

Posted by AndrewT on 30th Apr 2013

VOSA has launched a consultation on proposals to change the fees for a range of services it carries out, including:
  • Testing of heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) and public service vehicles (PSVs) - buses and coaches used for hire and reward
  • HGV and PSV operator licensing
  • Local bus service registration
  • Reduced pollution certificates (RPC) and low emission certificates
  • Tachograph calibrator approval
VOSA aims to create fairer fees and cover their costs.  Things are unlikely to be cheaper following the consultation! VOSA Chief Executive - Alastair Peoples “After four years with no general fee increases, VOSA will continue to absorb most costs and keep general rises to a minimal one per cent.  This is god news for our customers as the increase is far below inflation. I am also pleased to be able to propose a fairer allocation of costs between customers having their vehicles tested at ATFs and VOSA test stations.  I am keen to hear the views from customers on our proposals.” Have your say. The consultation, is open until 11 June 2013 and can be found here.
