We have assessed these issues with DVLA and the Driver Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).
We have produced a modified definition of ‘Substantial Change’ based on DVLA’s rule and propose to include it in guidance which will be finalised
before the regulations come into force.
A copy of this in draft is annexed to the response.
We will discuss the definition with stakeholders before the guidance is issued and ensure that the guidance is the subject of regul
ar review. It is recognised that guidance may need to vary slightly in the case of motorcycles as some of the common features for cars are not present on bikes. Accordingly a slightly different definition of “substantial change” will be used for motorcycles.
This will also be published.
