We are DVSA: Annual Review 2020 to 2021

Date: Friday 16 July 2021

Over the last year, DVSA has worked hard to help everyone stay safe on Britain's roads and support critical workers in the national response to the pandemic and have recently presented the ‘We are DVSA: Annual Review 2020 to 2021’, which recognises the many ways DVSA colleagues adapted and overcame great challenges, to deliver important public services.
