The Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) was replaced by Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) in April 2014 and provides a range of licensing, testing and enforcement services, with the aim of improving the roadworthiness standards of vehicles, ensuring the compliance of operators and drivers, and supporting the independent Traffic Commissioners.
Prior to its change in 2014, Zircon provided Type Approval services to VOSA as part of the MOT Computerisation project.
