What type of tests do we carry out?

We carry out both LCV (light commerical vehicle) and HCV (heavy commercial vehicle) tests to include vans, trucks, trailers, camper-vans, buses, ambulances

When should the vehicle be tested?

All commercial vehicles should be tested on its first birthday (on or before its 1st Date of Registration) and every year thereafter. Camper-vans follow the NCT schedule of testing, i.e. four years after the date of first registration and every two years after that until the vehicle is ten years old when it will require annual testing.
Camper-vans registered prior to 01 January 1980 are not subject to periodic roadworthiness testing at this time.

What is required to carry out a test?

The vehicle, the vehicle presenters ID (drivers licence or passport), the original vehicle licensing certificate (VLC) or the tax book and the appropriate test fee.

What if a vehicle fails?

A “Fail Report” will be issued to you. This allows 21days or 4000kms whichever comes first to have the repairs made and represent the vehicle for retest. If a vehicle is re-presented outside the 21 days or has 4000kms since the initial test a full test will be carried out at the full price.

What if my vehicle fails on a minor fault i.e. blown bulbs, headlamp aim?

We can quote you for any rectifications required and if instructed by you most minor faults can be rectified while you wait thus saving you returning for a retest.
