Tool Calibration Frequently Asked Questions
Accurate tools are crucial for ensuring the safety and quality of your repairs. Inaccurate garage tools can lead to incorrect measurements, potentially compromising the safety of the mechanic, vehicle and driver. Regular calibration ensures tool accuracy and helps comply with UK garage regulations set out by governing bodies such as the DVSA and GEA.
Note: If it’s found that defective equipment has been used on jobs before testing you will need to determine and ultimately take the appropriate corrective action - this may include recall of the vehicles on which the defective equipment was used. We will provide as much help and information as possible to support the decision-making process.
Many tools require calibration, including torque wrenches, micrometers, pressure gauges, vernier calipers, and electrical testers.
As well as this, your MOT Bay also needs regular preventative maintenance and calibration.
Consult your tool or garage equipment manufacturers' recommendations for specific calibration intervals, or contact Concept Garage Equipment to check this for you.
Certification is issued against test equipment which has been calibrated in UKAS-accredited laboratories and is therefore traceable to National Standards.
Unless you have the necessary tool calibration equipment, expertise and accreditation then professional calibration is recommended. Professionals use certified equipment and follow strict procedures to ensure accurate results and compliance with regulations.
There is no legal requirement on the frequency of measuring equipment. Most garage equipment and tools have a manufacturer's recommendation to be calibrated every 12 months.
The two things people often have calibrated 6 monthly are tyre inflators & torque wrenches. This is for insurance reasons or HGV fleet compliance.
Consult your manufacturer's documentation or warranty for your recommended period between calibrations, or contact Concept Garage Equipment to check this for you.
£175 would be the minimum cost you would expect to pay for garage tool calibrations.
There is no callout fee for this, but generally, we would calibrate a minimum of 10-12 tools during a single visit.
The cost for an MOT Bay calibration would be priced depending on the type and number of bays that you have operational, as well as the kind of equipment on each bay.
