Heavy Goods Vehicle Inspection: Service Brake Control Mobile App
The primary purpose of the Heavy Goods Vehicle Inspection: Service Brake Control
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 examination applies to all vehicles. Power operated braking systems where the foot valve is fully open before the pedal is fully depressed do not require any reserve travel. Vehicles with power assisted brakes should be inspected with the engine switched off.
