DVSA publish a cut off date for unconnectable equipment

30 May DVSA publish a cut off date for unconnectable equipment

We have recently received many questions from members regarding the GEA’s current approval process for equipment and the connectivity to MOT standards.  Today (30/05/2019) the DVSA have informed us of the following:

  • No new approvals to be granted for class 3, 4, 5  & 7 RBT’s from the 1st July 2019 unless they can be connected to the MOT testing service.
  • No new approvals to be granted for any class 3, 4, 5 &  7 test equipment for example (EGA, DSM, HBS and Decelerometers) From 1st August 2019 unless they can be connected to the MOT testing service.

Please note: this does not give a date of the DVSA’s intention to only allow connected equipment to be installed in new MOT Lanes and when equipment is renewed, but it will put a stop to all new MOT equipment approvals unless the equipment is connectable to the MTS (MOT Testing Scheme).

Information on requirements for connectable equipment can be found in the Members area of the Technical Library
