VOSA ATF at Hammond Group
Thanks to increased investment in our ever expanding HGV commercial workshops, we are proud to offer a state of the art MOT and tachograph facility.
Our VOSA ATF lane enables us to carry out MOT testing on all HGV’s, trailers and PSV’s. We now have a loaded test trailer and weights on site.
ATF Service - Fast tractors are coming into the scope of annual testing
What is a fast tractor?
Roadworthiness directive (2014/45/EU which comes into effect from 20 May 2018), will introduce mandatory annual testing of “fast tractors”.
This means that these vehicles (also referred to as ‘category T’) will come into scope of mandatory testing if they are:
• capable by design and construction of exceeding 40 km/h
• used for haulage of a load that is not related to agriculture, horticulture or forestry operations
• used more than 15 miles from their operating base
To be considered as fast tractors, they must meet all the above criteria. These vehicles are to be included in the existing Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) scheme, using the current test standards.
The first test will be required 4 years after first registration and then at 2 yearly intervals.
We are now offering testing for these vehicles to allow time to get them tested before 20 May 2018. To book your tractor in please call: 01986 244078.
