The GEA have informed us that from today 1st March 2021 they have been advised that the DVSA will be stopping MOT stations who have either not met their obligations to have a connected Roller Brake Tester (RBT) by this date or are not using the connected function.
This will affect those MOT stations that have repeatedly ignored multiple communications / warning or have not confirmed their status with new brake tester orders.
From 1st October 2019 the DVSA made it mandatory, for new site applications, reopening sites, replacing existing or adding new brake testers, for them to be connected to the DVSA MTS system.
Vehicle Testing Stations changing ownership, were provided with a 3 month time scale to comply with the requirements on the 18th December 2019. This was later (30th March 2020) suspended due to the Coronvirus pandemic.
But today on the 1st March 2021, the DVSA have stated MOT Stations will be stopped, if they have not met their obligations with their connected brake tester.
