Emission checks for lorries

Release Date: 
04/07/2017

From August 2017, roadside checks of lorries carried out by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) will include an emissions check in a drive to clamp down on those trying to cheat emissions readings.

If a vehicle is found to have tampered emissions readings, DVSA enforcement officers will give the driver and operator 10 days to fix the emissions system. If the emissions system isn’t fixed within that time, a fine will be issued and repeat offenders could have their vehicle taken off the road immediately.

More information is available on the government website.
