Booking is advised especially if you want to wait with your vehicle.

Vehicles over 3500kg and are not multi-purpose vehicles have to have a test every year, the test can be done at a Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) Goods Vehicle Testing Station (GVTS) or a privately owned Authorised Testing Facility (ATF). All use DVSA staff and the same test standards.

We cannot test the vehicles but we can prepare the vehicles and take them for the test, using our skilled members of staff with all the current legislation of heavy goods vehicle testing.

We have on site brake testing facilities and can load the vehicles with what weight they need for the test.
