Truck Brake Test

Earlier this year the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) published a revised version of its Guide to Maintaining Roadworthiness.

Although the guidance advises that a ‘calibrated roller truck brake tester‘ (RBT) is used on each safety inspection, the DVSA also accept the use of an approved and calibrated decelerometer like the aide automotive BrakeCheck to carry out the three additional tests to the annual MOT roller brake test.

Probably the brake testing requirement is the biggest burden on operators, but using a decelerometer within the inspection is no more of an inconvenience to the inspection routine.
Since the revision aide automotive has seen a further interest in the portable decelerometer BrakeCheck. Many operators have enquired and purchased a PC or printer kit to meet to the guidance.

In addition to BrakeCheck Standard we can also offer BrakeCheck Plus Or Trailer Brake Tester BrakeCheck TT, both these testers have a 99 test memory.
