Commercial Vehicle Roadworthiness Testing (CVRT)

The Commercial Vehicle Roadworthiness Testing is currently making appointments to carry out inspections to assess the maintenance and repair of commercial vehicles, including trailers, used in your business.

The purpose of this inspection is to check for your compliance with the conditions and obligations set out in the Road Safety Authority (Commercial Vehicle Roadworthiness) (Vehicle Maintenance and Repair) Regulations 2013.
