07 Feb February 2020 Update: MOT Connected Equipment continues to progress through new phases
This February, the introduction of connected Decelerometer brake testers have been brought into circulation, as the DVSA continue to take the necessary steps towards securing a completely connected MOT process.
As we have highlighted before in our previous blog, the DVSA will now only approve new applications for testing facilities if they include an approved model of connected decelerometer brake tester, as of February 1st 2020.
This is only the second of two pieces of MOT equipment that have made the change to connected compatibility, with more MOT rule extensions drawing ever closer.
The future of MOT services in 2020
Looking to the future can be exciting, concerning or confusing. In the case of MOT connected equipment, it could be one of the best things you do.
It is expected that by the end of 2020, further MOT rule extensions should have moved on to cover:
- Gas Analysers
- Smoke Meters
- Headlamp Beam Testers
Being aware of when these rules will come into circulation can help you make a smart decision on when to purchase new equipment for your testing bay.
