DSA and VOSA Merger

The 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 two agencies and will oversee their strategic operations towards a full merger over the next year.

The changes will not impact on:

  • The services you use that are provided by DSA and VOSA ie. driving tests
  • Progress of other ongoing reform programmes
  • Better and more convenient services
