Return On Investment

With the introduction of the Commercial Vehicle Roadworthiness (CVR) Reform Act 2012, it has never been more important to ensure that your fleet complies with all roadworthiness legislation. It is therefore crucial for transport operators to ensure that they are carrying out all the neccessary brake tests and are acting on the results.

The cost to any transport operator of carrying out all of the required brake tests on all of it's vehicles is becoming more and more prohibitive.

  1. Cost of each test being paid to an external test centre
  2. Costs of travelling to and from the test centre
  3. Cost of the vehicle being off road and unavailable for chargeable work

These costs can be eliminated by installing your own brake tester and limiting the time that your vehicles are unavailable for chargeable work.

Also any issues that need to be addressed can be done so immediately and the vehicle can be re-tested without having to travel back again to the test centre after any defect is repaired.
