Test centres may carry on conducting tests with equipment that’s out of calibration where engineers are not currently available, the DVSA has told GW.

Provided that the equipment appears to be functioning correctly, the agency has confirmed that testing may continue but that calibrations should be conducted as soon as engineers are available.

The DVSA has already contacted some test centres that have raised the query.

In an email to a test centre seen by GW, a DVSA customer service agent said: “If your equipment appears to be functioning normally and correctly you can carry on delivering tests out of calibration.

“You should not use equipment that is functioning incorrectly or is unsafe.

“Any overdue calibrations should be carried out as soon as engineers are available.”

    We have been told from York council we can not get any rates relief or grants.
    I run 2 mot and repair garages with 12 staff.
    We closed Thursday night as everyone cancelled for the foreseeable future.
    We are in real trouble.
