Issue Date March 2019 20 4. All testing equipment must be kept in good working order. Measuring apparatus must be calibrated in accordance with DVSA’s requirements. If an item of mandatory test equipment is not re-calibrated by its due date then testing which uses that item must not continue. In exceptional circumstances where the calibration cannot be carried out by the due date the SM should notify DVSA via the Customer Service Centre. Testing must stop on any class or type of vehicle as soon as any mandatory item of equipment malfunctions, in away that could prevent a test being properly conducted on that class or type of vehicle. Testing must not be resumed until the equipment is properly repaired. If equipment fails during a test but before its use has been completed, the test must be aborted and any fee paid returned.
Roller/plate brake testers and headlamp aim testers can be calibrated anytime during the six months following its last date of calibration. The equipment is then considered calibrated until the end of the 6th month.
Example: If an RBT is calibrated on the 15 Jan 2017 – the calibration expiry is the
31 July 2017. Therefore any calibration must be carried out before the 1 August 2017. There are two exceptions to the general rule in paragraph 4 above. a) Where a roller or plate brake tester malfunctions testing may continue, for up to
2 working days from the time the defect occurred, using the DVSA approved decelerometer. Only tests booked before the malfunction can be carried out under this arrangement. b) Where the wheel free play detector malfunctions at an ATL or OPTL approved
VTS, testing may continue using the conventional method with an assistant for those specific parts of the test.
5. An AE must apply to DVSA for approval prior to the changes being made for the following Addition of test classes to replace or modify any fixed test equipment that will alter the approved dimensions or layout alter the building or the layout of equipment The AE can apply using the VT application form on gov.uk. Supporting drawings should be enclosed with the application. No proposed change will be acceptable if it reduces clearances or dimensions (including those for access) below the limits specified in the Requirements for Authorisation or, for features approved only as acceptable variations, below their existing values. Any like for like changes to fixed test equipment must be notified to DVSA using the Change testing equipment link on the vehicle testing station page on the MOT testing service. Provided the notification has been given, the AE can proceed to have the equipment installed and use it. The changes will be checked by DVSA at the next visit. If the changes do not meet the Requirements for Authorisation approval may not be given. The renewal of mobile testing equipment does not have to be notified to DVSA provided that the replacement is on the current DVSA approved list and will not affect the range of vehicles that can be tested.
