The Stationery Office has been handed responsibility for delivering the updated Highway Code, after having its publishing contract renewed by the DVSA.
Announced in October 2018, the ‘new and improved’ Highway Code is designed to help keep cyclists and pedestrians safe on the roads.
Under the new contact, which began on 7 January, The Stationery Office (TSO) will also update existing products, including the Official DVSA Theory Test Kit app.
TSO will ensure official DVSA products are made ‘easily available’ for users to buy and access anytime, anywhere and in formats which ‘suit their learning style and needs’.
The DVSA and TSO believe that all road users will benefit from the partnerships’ ‘authority and expertise’, helping them to stay safe on Britain’s roads ‘for many years to come’.
Gareth Llewellyn, chief executive of DVSA said: “We’re delighted to announce the new publishing contract with TSO that will build on the success of our publications.
“We look forward to continuing our long-standing relationship to create learning materials that will help people stay safe on Britain’s roads.”
TSO, part of the Williams Lea Tag, has been the DVSA’s official publishing partner for more than 30 years.
TSO says this long-standing partnership has created a portfolio of best-selling apps, online subscriptions, books, eBooks, discs and downloads.
Jonathan Simpson-Dent, Williams Lea Tag’s EMEA chief executive, said: “We’re thrilled to be awarded this new publishing contract with DVSA.
“Our primary objective is to deliver a seamless customer experience and our combined teams have done a brilliant job to make that happen.
“We look forward to building on our successful relationship with DVSA through our leading publishing, marketing and communications solutions.”
