Government consultation on banning tyres aged 10 years and older


Date: 03-Jul-2019

A consultation was opened recently on a proposed ban on tyres aged 10 years and older from heavy goods vehicles, heavy trailers, buses, coaches and minibuses.


This consultation will remain open for ten weeks, closing at 11:45pm on 1 September 2019.

The Department for Transport is seeking views on a proposed ban on tyres aged 10 years and older from certain vehicle types, to improve road safety.  The intention would be to introduce regulations that ban the use of tyres aged 10 years and older from:

  • heavy goods vehicles
  • heavy trailers
  • buses, coaches and minibuses
The DfT and DVSA are also seeking views and evidence on whether to introduce a similar maximum age for tyres fitted to taxis and private hire vehicles.

Anyone wishing to make a submission can do so either online or by downloading and completing a form.  For full details, CLICK HERE.
