Heavy Goods Vehicle Inspection: Cab Security Mobile App
The primary purpose of the Heavy Goods Vehicle Inspection: Cab Security mobile app is to support staff in conducting the annual testing of vehicles.
How does it work?
The app is useful to those responsible for the maintenance of large commercial vehicles so that they remain well informed on the current minimum legal standards for roadworthiness. It must be emphasised that these are minimum acceptable standards, which do not necessarily allow for further deterioration when the vehicle is in service.
This inspection applies to all vehicles. All means of securing the cab are to be inspected where practical. Movement which is designed into mountings should not be confused with excessive wear. Cab security inspection applies to the primary and secondary locking devices for tilt cabs. The inspection does not cover air leaks from cab air suspension unless it affects the brakes. This would be an RfF within the appropriate brake section.
