Tyre defects and damage guidance for operators and maintenance inspectors

15 Dec 2020

You can use this guide if you’re a vehicle operator or maintenance inspector to help you make consistent decisions about tyre wear, defects and damage.

This should:

  • improve the safety of vehicles
  • reduce the time spent contesting borderline cases
  • reduce the number of roadworthy tyres that are replaced prematurely

The guidance contains examples of tyre defects on HGVs, buses and trailers and how they will be dealt with at road side inspections and MoT.
