DVSA chief executive Alastair Peoples opens an ATF

 5) Alastair Peoples, chief executive, DVSA

It’s hard to believe that it was only April that the DSA and Vosa merged, such has been the smooth transition under the stewardship of former Vosa chief executive Peoples. Perhaps we should not be surprised at such efficiency, as Peoples’ record rewards scrutiny.

At the helm at Vosa Peoples was the man who pushed the transition to privately-run ATFs, and introduced the OCRS system. Both measures have been controversial, but the first-time pass rate of trucks and trailers at their annual roadworthiness test hit a record high in March (78.4% of trucks and 85.1% of trailers). At the launch of the DVSA in April Peoples promised to double the current number of ATFs (400).

Not enough for you? Peoples and the DVSA effectively delivered Driver CPC this year, with more than 564,000 drivers completing 35 hours of driver training by the deadline in September.
