Inspecting lorry tyres with a magnifying glass

From the 1st February 2021, tyres aged over 10 years are banned on the front steered axles of lorries, buses and coaches along with all single wheels of minibuses (9–16 passengers seats).

DVSA are enforcing the new legislation at roadside checks along with vehicle annual tests.

Updated sanctions policy

DVSA have now revised their enforcement sanctions policy to reflect the new offences, which includes affected tyres over 10 years old and not having a date marking that is clearly legible.

Penalties will include:

  • £100 fixed penalty
  • endorsable points on the driver’s licence
  • a possible prosecution for more than one endorsable offence
