Why get a Pre-CVRT check done on my light commercial vehicle?

Before a commercial vehicle is tested by the Vehicle Testing Network (VTN) under the Commercial Vehicle Roadworthiness legislation, it is advisable to have it serviced or checked over beforehand by a qualified mechanic. The inconvenience of having a commercial vehicle fail the CVRT far outweighs the effort of having a vehicle properly serviced and checked over prior to having it tested.

What is checked during a pre-CVRT check?

A pre-CVRT check includes checking the following items and more:

  • Lights for correct operation, damage and water ingress
  • Bulbs are working and correct colour
  • Headlamp alignment and self leveling adjustor operation
  • Suspension for visual defects such as worn bushes and linkages
  • Brake pads and discs checked for correct minimum thickness
  • Brake calipers checked for correct fitment and moving correctly
  • Brake fluid checked for correct level and water content
  • Coolant checked for level and concentration
  • Engine oil checked for quantity
  • Windscreen washer operation checked and topped up
  • Wipers checked for correct operation and fitment
  • Exhaust checked for leaks and fitment
  • On Board Computer checked for fault codes
  • Timing belt checked against time and distance recommended by manufacturer
