In order to keep Irish roads safe, your vehicle needs to pass an annual commercial vehicle roadworthiness testing (CVRT). The CVR test makes sure that all goods and passenger vehicles on the road have been fairly tested. Once they are over a year old, all commercial vehicles must be tested annually after that.
Why you need a CVRT
First and foremost, it’s the most effective way to check the basic condition of your vehicle. The test works by identifying any and all vehicle failure points on items tested in accordance with the CVRT manuals. Yearly tests such as the CVRT save time as well-maintained vehicles leads to fewer breakdowns. The CVRT programme in particular has been known to improve the overall efficiency for goods and passenger vehicle testing in Ireland.
