Connected MOT Equipment changes show no sign of slowing in 2020

20 Dec Connected MOT Equipment changes show no sign of slowing in 2020

2019 has been an incredible year at AMN Garage Assist – we have helped hundreds of garages with everything from brand new equipment installs to the management of their MOT Bay.

As the year draws to a close it is natural to reflect on the changes that have impacted us & our customers. Much of this change was focused on the inevitable rollout of MOT Connected Equipment. We’ve been at every relevant gathering with bodies like the DVSA & GEA to ensure we are one step ahead of these new developments.

This also means we’re ready to answer any questions you might have on what connected equipment could mean for your garage in the short & long term.

Many of you may already be aware that connected Roller Brake Testers are now required to be connected. This was implemented from the 1st October 2019 for all new installs. However, this left many wondering if they needed to make a change or provision for connectivity to keep testing with the DVSA.

What’s more, development work is still ongoing to complete the connectivity of all equipment. The DVSA works closely with MOT equipment suppliers to ensure the ultimate solution is fit for both their purpose & the MOT testers using the equipment daily. AMN Garage Assist is pleased to be a part of this feedback loop, representing you, our customers.

We’ve spoken before about Decelerometers with a deadline of 1st February for connectivity & the announcements show no sign of slowing up in 2020. The whole industry is set to be shaken up by a complete overhaul of connected equipment over the next couple of years.

We make it our priority to know the ins and outs of changes like this so you can focus on running your business.

By communicating with us, you have a direct line into keeping compliant and on top of these changes. Contact us today to discuss your situation.
