Vehicle re-check policy
Your vehicle could be randomly selected for a re-check by centre management. If your vehicle is chosen, it will go back through the MOT testing process as part of a quality control to make sure that standards are maintained.
Due to the restrictions introduced to prevent the spread of COVID-19, some DVA services are operating at limited capacity.
For more details, and the most up-to-date position on DVA service availability, visit the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and motoring page.
Driver & Vehicle Agency (DVA) complies with all required statutory requirements whilst conducting vehicle inspections. With the introduction of the vehicle re-check policy, the effectiveness, impartiality and high standards expected by DVA customers can be clearly demonstrated.
This policy is to make sure that vehicles are issued with a certificate or failure notice as appropriate and high standards are maintained.
The workings of a re-check
Once the vehicle inspection is fully completed and before the certificate or failure notice is issued, the centre manager will signal to the examiner that your vehicle has been selected for a re-check.
The examiner will then tell you that your vehicle has been randomly selected as part of the DVA’s quality regime and a re-check of the vehicle is going to take place.
