The vehicles ECU will flag up warnings on your dashboard if the vehicle is experiencing faults. The faults vary from low risk oil/coolant levels being low to more serious braking and engine malfunction. The severity of the warning will be indicated in orange or red, orange being of medium risk and should be rectified as soon as possible and a red warning will indicate the vehicle must be rectified immediately. To get further information on the fault the vehicle needs to be plugged into a diagnostic kit which we have at the workshop or we can bring to you roadside.
We ask for your vehicle three days before its test date for a good reason. The vehicle needs a full chassis wash as per the DVSA requirements, then we inspect the vehicle as per the testers manual and rectify any defects we find as we go. In most circumstances the vehicle will then need to be loaded, if you own a road tanker then you will likely put a load on for us and bring it back to the workshop for its brake test. Sometimes further work will need to be carried out after its brake test and we always quality check the vehicle using a different set of eyes. At this point the vehicle is ready to be presented for its test.
