DVSA Blog Update

DVSA Blog Update

  • April 1, 2023

DVSA have recently posted a useful DVSA blog update providing advice on inputting advisories, getting mileage right and the trialling of new connected camera equipment.


  • use of a range of standard wording instead of using free text
  • recording the correct information
  • inappropriate content


  • an interrupt screen will warn the Tester if mileage is considerably different or the same as the last MOT
  • the Tester must confirm the mileage entered is correct or edit it

Developing New Connected Equipment

  • connected cameras in garages continues to be trialled
  • the purpose of the trial is to reduce record keeping  errors by using a device with a built in camera, like a phone or tablet
  • as part of the registration process the Tester will upload a photo of the vehicle’s number plate to the MTS
