This series contains policy files relating to all aspects of vehicle safety, including motor vehicle contruction and use regulations (dealing with, for example, tyres, brakes, headlights and seat belts); vehicle testing and inspections; the approval of motor vehicles, equipment and parts; speed limits; and standards for the construction and use of goods vehicles, public service vehicles and hovercraft. Some files were re-registered from the VR and VRT series.

The series also contains papers concerning a 1954 regulation requiring all pedal cyclists to maintain their brakes.
