If you are a driver of an LGV or HGV, then you most likely come across CVR tests and their importance for commercial vehicle drivers. Before you can legally drive a commercial vehicle on Irish roads, it must first pass its Commercial Vehicle Roadworthiness Test (CVRT), which is a test on your vehicle’s safety, performance and components. Once your vehicle passes the CVRT test you are issued with a Certificate of Roadworthiness (CRW). This CRW is required to tax your vehicle.

The purpose of this test is to ensure that your vehicle meets the legal standards of roadworthiness and that it’s safe to operate on the roads. In this post, we are going to discuss why CVR tests are essential for LGV drivers and explain everything that you need to know about them. To book your CVR test for your LGV, head over to our website.

It’s a Legal Obligation

All Irish commercial vehicles must be tested annually, and it is a requirement by the law. This means that if you do not have a valid CVR test, you can get fines and penalty points on your licence. No CVR test also means no tax, as you can’t renew your vehicle’s tax without a CVR pass statement. To ensure that you are complying with the law and don’t have to face any penalty points or fines, get your CVR test done ahead of time so you don’t experience any issues.

Find Hidden Issues with Your Vehicle

CVR tests can also find hidden issues with your LGV so that you can identify them before they become bigger problems. Often if we have issues with our vehicles, whether that be with the spark plugs, oil, brakes, or suspension we might not know until it is too late. CVR tests will identify any issues with your vehicle so that you can get them fixed before they turn into much more time-consuming and costly issues.

Ensures your Vehicle is in Good Working Order

A CVR test also ensures that every visible area of your car is in good working order and that all parts of it are working. This means that you can be sure that your vehicle is working optimally and efficiently and that it isn’t going to cause you any problems. This also means that your vehicle will be safe, so you and other drivers on the road aren’t put at any risk of potential dangers from accidents.

Reduced Vehicle Downtime

An annual test of this kind also ensures that all major issues are spotted sooner, meaning that there will be much less chance of a breakdown occurring. When our vehicles break down, this can mean downtime from work so you will be losing out on money and business. When you have a CVR test, any issues will be spotted meaning fewer breakdowns and less time being off the road.
