The Categorisation of Defects on Road Vehicles will be updated for 1 May due to changes to legislation
affecting GB roadworthiness examinations. These changes have been brought about
by the new roadworthiness directive 2010/47EU, which seeks to harmonise roadworthiness standards
across European countries.
The changes are relatively minor and come into effect at the same time as the new annual test changes at the beginning of May 2012.
