Changes to ADR and IVA vehicle test times

Lorry in test centre

We’re changing the Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR) and Individual Vehicle Approval (IVA) vehicle test times from 1 March 2016.

A revised set of test times will be added to our customer booking system so that an appropriate time slot can be given. This will help in resource planning, not only for our vehicle test stations, but for Privately Owned Test Facilities (POTFs) and Authorised Testing Facilities (ATFs) who offer these types of vehicle tests.

The revised vehicle test times are shown in the table below:

The guide times should only be used for scheduling and planning

The test content, site criteria and staff won’t change, and it is important that POTFs and ATF operators understand that these are average guide times. The guide times cover a range of vehicles and should only be used for scheduling and planning.

Remember, depending on the type of vehicle being tested, some tests will take more or less time than others.
