August, September, October and November are a lot busier than usual for vehicle and trailer annual testing. This is due to exemptions that were put in place last year as a result of the pandemic.
It is expected that May, June and July will have lower test volumes, this will mean that ATFs will have a lot more availability for tests during this time.
For peace of mind, we are advising operators with tests in August, September, October and November to move to May, June or July and avoid the busier months later in the year. Doing this will also help you to avoid issues in future years.
Moving tests to quieter months helps everyone:
- you guarantee your test date
- the demand for vehicle maintenance and preparation is spread out during the year
- ATFs can manage the demand
- we can get the right levels of staff to ATFs
