The DVSA has confirmed that its heavy vehicle testing service is set to continue and ATFs can remain open, despite national restrictions coming into effect from Thursday, November 5.
The DVSA in a statement issued to HGVUK.com stated: “The national restrictions do not affect our heavy vehicle testing service and ATFs can remain open.”
“We can continue to provide the vehicle standards assessors needed to test heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) and public service vehicles (PSVs) safely.”
You should only book your vehicle or trailer in for its test close to its MOT due date. This will make sure vehicles and trailers which legally need a test can get one.
You should continue to manage the regular maintenance and inspection schedule for your vehicles and trailers. This is a legal requirement under your operator’s licence.
Vocational theory tests
Vocational theory tests will be affected during the national restrictions in England.
All theory tests will be suspended from Thursday, November 5 and are scheduled to restart on Wednesday, December 2, 2020.
