Heavy vehicle testing during the Covid 19 suspension period

7 May 2020

 

As you are aware, due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, DVSA have taken the decision to suspend heavy goods vehicle (HGV), trailer and public service vehicle (PSV) testing for up to 3 months.

 

However, there are some instances where we’ll be testing vehicles which are being used to support the COVID-19 response.

 

These are:

•            out-of-service MOT vehicles or trailers being returned to service

•            approval of specialist vehicles, including ambulances and fire service vehicles

 

Some of this testing will be carried out by DVSA staff at ATFs. Operators/vehicle presenters will nominate an ATF based on the location of the vehicles.
