Vosa to increase fines issued as graduated fixed penalties

  • 11 June 2013
  • By Christopher Walton

Vosa has revealed increases in fines issued as graduated fixed penalties (GFPs) for commercial vehicle drivers – the first increase since the agency was granted to power to issue GFPs in 2009.

The new levels of GFPs will apply to a variety of offences, ranging from drivers’ hours to overloading and increases to the maximum deposit that can be taken at the roadside – for both UK and non-UK registered drivers – are also being proposed.

The changes, expected to be introduced in July, see:

  • A £30 non-endorsable fine rise to £50
  • A £60 endorsable and non-endorsable fine rise to £100
  • A £120 endorsable and non-endorsable fine rise to £200
  • And a £200 endorsable and non-endorsable fine  rise to £300

Roads minister Stephen Hammond said: “We are increasing penalties for a range of driving offences to a level which reflects their seriousness and ensure that they are consistent with other similar penalty offences.”

Vosa revealed plans to increase test fees last month.
