The rules for connected MOT equipment have changed

From 1 October 2019, anyone buying a new roller brake tester must make sure it’s a model that can connect to the MOT testing service.

This includes buying replacement equipment, and as part of the process of getting authorisation to carry out MOTs at a test station.

We’ve done this to modernise testing in garages, save garages time and reduce the risk of error and fraud.

Working with manufacturers

We’re working with manufacturers to develop other types of connectable equipment.

These are:

  • diesel smoke meters
  • exhaust gas analysers
  • decelerometers
  • headlamp aligners

The rules for these kinds of equipment have not changed, but DVSA is planning to do so in the future.
