* UK - MoT test changes to be introduced this month
London,EN,UK -Commercial Motor, by Roger Brown -4 March 2013: -- Changes to truck and van MoT tests in England, Scotland and Wales are set to be introduced later this month in response to advances in vehicle technology... The modifications, which will come into force on 20 March as a result of EU directive, will mean extra checks for some of the vehicle systems already examined in annual vehicle testing such as brakes, steering, suspension and lighting... The test revision will also result in new checks on several items including:
• electronic power steering malfunction indicator lamp
• brake fluid warning lamp illuminated or inoperative
• engine mountings
Cars, buses and coaches will also be affected by the changes to testing which are already in place in Northern Ireland... The changes will not affect the basic cost of a test...
