The DVSA asks: Beyond the brake test – are you taking action?

Your brake testing reports tell you much more than whether your vehicle has passed or failed.

Reading the reports should be a key part of your maintenance system and you need to know what they mean. Poorly maintained brakes may result in the loss of control of a vehicle with dire consequences.

Even if your vehicle has passed the test, there may be things you can do to identify items that may be getting worse and need dealing with before they let you down.

Vehicle Policy Specialist, Richard Clements, explains why you need to understand them.
