DOE Test Price List

The VTN / DOE Test is a Fixed Cost Price Vehicle Test 

The price structure for vehicle testing in Ireland is set by the VTN network (CVR testing network).

This is the regulating body for truck testers in Ireland and is a government controlled agency. All vehicle testers are appointed by this body and carry out vehicle testing to strict guidelines and procedures. 

The cost price of the test is determined by the type of vehicle which is being tested.

A simple rule of thumb is that the larger the vehicle, the higher the price of the test. The logic behind this is that it takes far longer to test a larger vehicle with 4 or 5 axles than a small car derived van.

The LGV test is a fixed price and is the same regardless of vehicle type although ambulances go into a different price schedule as shown below. 

The HGV test is broken down in relation to:

 1. The gross vehicle weight

2. The number of axles present on the vehicles.

As the number of axles rise, so does the cost of the test. Because the brake test is such a large and time consuming part of the test, it is logical that the test is cheaper for vehicles with fewer axles.
