What are the legal requirements for LGV (van) maintenance in the UK?

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) is responsible for ensuring that all LGVs on UK roads are roadworthy and safe. To meet the legal requirements, you must have regular inspections, maintenance, and repairs conducted by a qualified technician. The DVSA recommends that you have a yearly MOT test and a regular service schedule based on the manufacturer’s recommendations.
