Passenger vehicles are required to meet emissions standards for exhausts; this now forms part of the annual MOT for cars aged three years or older. Any vehicles that are obviously failing to meet a suitable standard should be reported to the Driver and Vehicles Standards Agency (formerly Vehicles & Operator Services Agency (VOSA)).
Should you spot an excessively smoky diesel lorry, bus or coach (HGV’s & PSV’s), you can report this by completing the online reporting form on the Driver and Vehicles Standards Agency website.
You will need to tell them:
The type of vehicle (HGV or PSV)
The vehicle registration mark (registration number) of the smoky vehicle
The Company name on the vehicle
The location of where you saw the smoky vehicle
The date and time of when you sighted the smoky vehicle
