From 1 February, tyres aged over 10 years will be banned on the front steered axles of lorries, buses and coaches along with all single wheels of minibuses (9-16 passengers seats).
The DVSA will be enforcing the legislation at roadside checks along with vehicle annual tests.

The DVSA has revised its enforcement sanctions policy to reflect the new offences, which will include affected tyres over 10 years old and not having a date marking that is clearly legible.
- £100 fixed penalty
- Endorsable points on the driver’s licence
- A possible prosecution for more than one endorsable offence
