Speed limiter response will no longer be tested at annual test

27 Apr 2021

DVSA advise a check done during the annual test on analogue tachographs is being removed from the test.

 

The testing of speed limiter response speeds in vehicles with an analogue tachograph will no longer be part of the annual test on heavy vehicles.

 

This change means all Authorised Testing Facilities (ATFs) will be able to test vehicles fitted with analogue tachographs. Previously only certain ATFs could perform annual tests on vehicles fitted with this type of tachograph due to the equipment needed.

 

The procedure has been suspended during the COVID-19 pandemic, but will stop being part of the annual test permanently from May 1 this year. This will mean there will be no requirement for ATFs to own or calibrate this equipment after this date.
