BUYING A NEW DECELEROMETER OR ROLLER BRAKE TESTER - DVSA

25 Feb 2020

IF YOU'RE BUYING A NEW DECELEROMETER OR ROLLER BRAKE TESTER FOR YOUR MOT GARAGE, YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE IT CAN CONNECT TO THE MOT TESTING SERVICE.

 

The Garage Equipment Association publishes lists of equipment approved for MOT testing.

Any new or replacement equipment you buy must be on these lists. All equipment must be kept in good working order and calibrated properly.

 

Connect equipment to the MOT testing service

Some types of equipment can connect directly to the service you use to record MOT test results. This means that test results can be automatically transferred to service without the need for manual data entry.

 

Equipment that must be able to connect

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) is introducing a rule that means new or replacement equipment you buy must be able to connect to the service.
