  • Tests take between 30 and 60 minutes.

  • Following the test, either a pass or fail report is issued by our centre, depending on the test result.


  • Prices: LGV Standard Test: €111.16 inc vat

  • If the vehicle passes, the Certificate of Roadworthiness is automatically posted to the registered owner of the vehicle.
