DSA and VOSA to merge

  
DSA and the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) are to merge into a single agency which will bring together their testing and standards services.
  
Rosemary Thew, DSA Chief Executive, has also announced that she will be stepping down and leaving the Civil Service on 30 June 2013.
 
Alastair Peoples, VOSA Chief Executive, will become joint Chief Executive for the 2 agencies and will oversee their strategic operations towards a full merger over the next year.
 
Rosemary Thew said: “I’ve been considering moving on for some time, for private and personal reasons. The creation of a single agency replacing DSA and VOSA seems the right time for me to do so. I’m confident that the team here at DSA under Alastair’s leadership will continue to offer our customers the very best service they can as the merger proceeds and the combined agency emerges.”
 

No impact on services

The changes won’t impact on:
  • the services that are provided by DSA and VOSA, eg driving tests 
  • progress of other ongoing reform programmes 

Better and more convenient services

The reforms are an outcome of the recent motoring services strategy consultation. They are designed to offer motorists and businesses better and more convenient services, while making sure that road safety and first class customer service remain a top priority.
