MOT Connected Equipment regulations apply to Gas Analysers & Smoke Meters from 1 May 2021

The rules apply to companies testing or planning to test Classes 4, 5, and 7 under the following circumstances:

  • Opening a new MOT centre
  • Reopening a closed MOT centre
  • Changing ownership
  • Replacing emissions testing equipment

This means that anyone starting a new MOT Station or taking over an existing business will now require connected emissions in addition to a connected roller brake tester and a connected decelerometer.

The last item on the list for a fully connected test lane is a digital headlamp aim tester. This is likely to be a little way off still as the DVSA has yet to provide the final product specifications to manufacturers.
