Heavy Goods Vehicle Inspection: Condition of Body Mobile App
The primary purpose of the Heavy Goods Vehicle Inspection: Condition of Body 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. Check for defective items which would make the vehicle dangerous to other road users and pedestrians. The cumulative effect of any defects found must be considered or their influence on other items. Superficial damage which does not affect the strength of a component or which does not pose a danger to other road users is not a reason for failure. Check for any insecurity of glass panels or sharp edged glass on vehicles such as mobile shops and ice cream vans.
