Date: Friday 10 June 2022

The Department for Transport (DfT) has launched a public consultation on vehicle type approval – establishing a GB road vehicle approval scheme. 

The consultation seeks views on proposals to create a GB road vehicle type approval schemes for Great Britain. This will be a newly established and permanent replacement to the existing interim scheme that came into force at the end of the transition period with the EU. The scheme will cover passenger and goods vehicles, their trailers, systems and components. The consultation also seeks views on interim schemes for other vehicle categories and engines for non-road mobile machinery. A further consultation on the permanent schemes for these categories will be launched in the future.

The consultation opened on Wednesday, 1 June 2022 for a period of four weeks. The consultation will close at 11.45pm on Wednesday, 29 June 2022.
