GETECH Garage Equipment, manufacture a range of VOSA approved MoT garage equipment including motorcycle headlight testers and brake testers, and the Leeds based company supply this range across the entire United Kingdom directly to the end user. If garages are implementing an MoT bay facility, GETECH also supply, as part of its suite of services, complete ready-to-run VOSA approved packages. Prior to purchasing one of these packages full and free advice is provided to any potential applicants.

Last Tuesday’s Motorcycle Trader Daily article detailed how GETECH can assist with the introduction of an MoT bay facility, but what are the key features of the MoT equipment to be installed that differentiate a modern MoT facility from the traditional method of testing seen in older garages?

Simply put, there is no easy comparison! The latest regulations require equipment including a rail mounted headlight tester, rather than a fixed aiming screen, a modern roller brake tester, rather than a pull scale and various pieces of back-up equipment to allow an MoT to be conducted under almost any circumstances.

For new applicants, having no previous involvement in the MoT scheme, the detail of these regulations and the equipment required can be difficult to fully grasp, and so GETECH offer a complete turn-key package to enable these new applicants to pass the responsibility for the approval of the entire project to us.

“By making us responsible for achieving the MoT bay we can eliminate a majority of the stress and delays that might occur if the applicant was making the application to VOSA themselves,” say GETECH.

For existing test stations who wish to bring their installations “up-to-date”, this could mean a re-investment in the MoT bay equipment, but the benefits of such an upgrade can be significant – automatic braking efficiency calculation, integrated weighing systems and a host of other features in modern MoT test bay equipment give the MoT tester far more detailed information from which to make his assessments. This better data leads to a more accurate, repeatable test, making motorcycles safer vehicles, both to ride, but also for those who share the road with them.

Again, such upgrades can be project managed by GETECH to enable existing business owners to continue to operate as a turn-key solution is delivered.
