The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has confirmed that annual test exemptions are being applied to heavy vehicles which are due to have their annual test in June 2020.

The exemptions have been applied automatically and include vehicles that were originally made exempt in March 2020. Information for operators on the testing date for particular vehicles in their fleet can check the details at

“We are working towards resuming heavy vehicle testing in June,” the Agency has said. “This involves talking to our staff, ATFs (Authorised Testing Facilities), the industry and operators about how we can provide a service which is safe for all involved and helps the return to regular testing.”

Further information will be provided in due course.

The DVSA has clarified that heavy vehicles due for a test in June will receive a three-month exemption from needing an annual test. This applies to vehicles which received a three-month exemption in March, as announced previously, and also concerns those with a due date normally in June.
