DECLARE A PUBLIC SERVICE VEHICLE (PSV) OR A HEAVY GOODS VEHICLE (HGV) DOES NOT NEED A SPEED LIMTER

 

You must declare if a public service vehicle (PSV) or heavy goods vehicle (HGV) is exempt from needing a speed limiter when you take it for its annual test (MOT).

•        is incapable of relevant speed by its original design
