03 Aug GEA STATEMENT
The GEA operates the MOT equipment approval service on behalf of the DVSA.
The DVSA set the equipment specifications and ask the GEA to inspect and approve MOT test equipment to those specifications. Recently we’ve received enquiries from workshops & installers, asking which brake test decelerometers are DVSA approved for HGV trailer testing. Whilst there are numerous approved decelerometers that may be used to complete a brake test during an MOT, we would like to point out that none are approved specifically for HGV trailer testing.
We publish a full list of DVSA/GEA approved MOT decelerometers our website www.gea.co.uk.
