News: COVID-19: HGV testing to restart

From 4th July, the DVSA are restarting testing for heavy vehicles. They have issued a 3-month exemption for vehicles due to be tested in June and will issue further exemptions for July tests. The exemptions will be applied automatically. You can use their MOT history service to check the expiry dates for your vehicles.

In August, vehicles which have already received an exemption will need a test. All other vehicles due for a test in August will receive a 3-month exemption. When those exemptions expire, vehicles will need to be brought in for test.

They are working with ATFs like us to resume testing from 4th July and will be increasing the availability of testers over the coming months, in line with social distancing and the latest Government guidance. ADR inspections will also be available from 4 July. Vehicle operators carrying dangerous goods who do not book an annual test should apply for a waiver, if they want their annual test and ADR inspection expiry dates to occur at the same time.

Our test centre remains closed but as soon as we have confirmation from the DVSA that it can be operational we will of course let you know.

If you have any questions in the meantime please consult the DVSA website or contact us at: tina@johnhudson.co.uk or 01302 710711

Thanks for your patience.

All at the John Hudson Trailers Test Centre.
