All detailed test information,
including specifications can be found at the CVRT website.
Here we have provided you with the basic details and test information of the tests we carry out.
Mc Ardles Test Centre carry out tests from Monday – Friday 9am to 6pm.
As vehicle details must be uploaded to the CVRT system before tests commence,
all tests must be booked, and all payments taken in advance.
We will always endeavour as much as possible to fit in a test to suit our customers busy time schedules.
Why should you get your vehicle tested
Its the Law.
The legislation states that all commercial vehicles must be tested when they are over one years old and annually after that. So having your vehicle tested means avoidance of penalty points and fines.
You cannot tax your vehicle without it.
Only when you vehicle passes its test, will you receive a Certificate of Road Worthiness. The new CVRT system is now linked to the national vehicle tax records, so you can’t renew your tax without your CRW.
It improves the quality of vehicles on the road.
The CVR test makes sure that, every year, all commercial vehicles on the road have been thoroughly tested to stringent standards. This improves the quality of vehicles on the road and road safety.
It saves time and money.
The CVR test keeps the stock of commercial vehicles to a maintenance level, that reduces breakdowns and downtime, which saves time any money for their owners.
Commercial Vehicle testing fees.
All retests must be completed within 21 calendar days and within 4,000 kms of the initial test or you’ll need to repeat the full test.
A visual re-test is free, but a retest that requires a test lane has a fee that is half of the normal test fee. You should repair vehicle fail items immediately and present the vehicle for re-test as soon as possible.
