Why you need a CVRT
The Commercial Vehicle Roadworthiness Test (CVRT) is a roadworthiness test for all commercial vehicles, buses with more than eight passenger seats and ambulances, all over one year old. The purpose of the test is to ensure that the vehicle is in good condition throughout its entire life.
Only when you pass your CVR test, will you get your Certificate of Road Worthiness (CRW). You must have a valid CRW in order to get your vehicle motor taxed.
The CVR test makes sure that, every year, all goods vehicles on the road have been thoroughly and fairly tested. The test catches vehicle failure points and re-tests vehicles on those points, so they return to the road as safer and more roadworthy vehicles.
Yearly tests and well-maintained vehicles mean fewer breakdowns. The CVRT programme improves the overall efficiency for goods vehicle testing.
The legislation states that all commercial vehicles must be tested when they are over one year old and annually after that. So having your vehicle tested means avoidance of penalty points and fines.
