Heavy Goods Vehicle Inspection: Driving Controls Mobile App
The primary purpose of the Heavy Goods Vehicle Inspection: Driving Controls
How does it work?
mobile app is to support staff in conducting the annual testing of vehicles. 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. From the drivers seat operate driving controls, except those for brakes and steering which are checked under other items, to see that they function correctly and are complete. Examples of driving controls which need to be inspected are:Gear control. Accelerator pedal. Clutch pedal.
The list is not exhaustive. An air leak from a gear valve is not an RfF. An accelerator pedal anti slip provision missing or worn smooth is not an RfF.
