Reminder – Changes to heavy vehicle testing – starts today

The DVSA have issued a reminder to all operators

From today, Monday 29 April 2024, we will no longer be issuing paper certificates for heavy vehicles (HGV/PSVs, Trailers) that have passed their annual test. 

Certificates will be able to be viewed, downloaded and printed freely from the MOT History Service (MOTH) throughout the year.

We will still issue paper documentation for vehicles that fail the test for the time being.

Next steps
