DVSA updates defects guide
An updated categorisation of defects guide has been published by the DVSA. The organisation recommends vehicle owners, operators and drivers use this guide to become more aware of the Agency’s inspection standards and possible defects. Clearer guidance for ABS/EBS defect identification has been included, as has the use of the digital tachograph over speed events to identify road speed limiter faults. It also includes an increased selection of advisory defects, so DVSA documentation issued after a road check is clearer for drivers and operators. Visit www.gov.uk/government/publications/categorisation-of-defects to see the new guidance.
