The DVSA has confirmed to Garage Wire that ADAS does not fall into the remit of the MOT yet.

The DVSA has confirmed to Garage Wire that ADAS remains out of the remit of the MOT, with all vehicle systems that don’t fall under the MOT being the responsibility of drivers to maintain.

In a statement, Neil Barlow, DVSA’s head of vehicle engineering, said: “Drivers should ensure all vehicle systems, regardless of whether they are covered by MOT, work correctly and should get any problems seen to as soon as possible.

“DVSA’s priority is to help everyone keep their vehicle safe to drive.

“Britain’s roads are amongst the safest in the world and the MOT is key to helping them stay that way.

“ADAS does not yet fall within the scope of MOT.

“We’re constantly reviewing the test to ensure it keeps up with changes in vehicle technology.”

Ahead of fresh legislation on both ADAS and dealing with MOT fraud, Barlow explained how action is currently taken against fraudulent MOT testers. He said: “MOT fraud compromises vehicle safety and will not be tolerated.

Banning fraudulent testers

“There are a range of sanctions that can be carried out against fraudulent MOT testers.

“As well as any legal penalties, DVSA can, and does, ban people guilty for MOT fraud from testing.”

What do you think about the DVSA announcement? Should ADAS already be covered by MOT? Let us know in the comments.

    I think we would need either a set test drive procedure ,which would mean a major rework of test procedure because we all have to do the same or an electronic means of testing it which will mean everybody have the needed matching diagnostic kit/soft where .
    I for one don’t feel I know enough about it yet and have not yet had any dealings with it but in the future we will need to make sure these systems don’t compromise vehicle safety
