Decelerometers added to connected MOT equipment

From 1 February 2020, anyone buying a new decelerometer for class 3, 4, 5 or 7 test lanes will need to make sure it’s a model that can connect to the MOT testing service.
This comes after the 1 October 2019 changes for roller brake testers. The change 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.
The following items are estimated for introduction:
• diesel smoke meters – late spring
• exhaust gas analysers late spring
• headlamp aligners – summer
Until they are introduced, garages can continue to use their current models.
You can find more about MOT garage equipment on GOV.UK
The Garage Equipment Association lists all DVSA acceptable equipment.
