The equipment on the MOT bay allows the MOT tester to test each part of the vehicle, and this can be supplied as an MOT Package, which can consist of one or more of the following pieces of MOT Equipment:
MOT headlamp beam tester
The MOT bay is equipped with a headlamp beam tester. The headlamp beam test ensures that the headlights of the vehicle are in the correct alignment whilst the vehicle is in motion. This part of the MOT test is to make sure that when the vehicle is been driven that its headlights don’t dazzle oncoming vehicles which could impair the vision of another motorist.
MOT Roller Brake Tester (RBT)
Other parts of the MOT test include testing the brakes using a roller brake tester (RBT). This piece of equipment tests the vehicle brakes whilst in motion. The tester will place the vehicle in the rollers and the RBT will spin at around 7mph giving the MOT tester the opportunity to test the brakes by using the equipment within the workshop setting.
MOT emissions analyser
Another piece of equipment used to carry out an MOT test is the emissions analyser. This test determines the level of air pollutants emitted from the exhaust of a motor vehicle. The goal of an emission test is to help reduce the number of pollutants that are harmful to the environment.
The vehicle lift or MOT ramp as it’s sometimes called allows the MOT tester to raise the vehicle from the floor to allow them to see under the vehicle to check joints, bushes and the exhaust system etc.
