Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations.)
These Regulations further amend the Motor Vehicle Testing Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1995 by amending the fees payable for examinations, inspections and tests.
The fee amendments for examinations are as follows—
(a)for a vehicle in Class III or IV (other than a minibus) from £17.50 to £17.00; and
(b)for a vehicle in Class III or IV (other than a minibus) where an application is made within 21 days from the date of service of a notification of refusal and the vehicle is presented for re-examination on the date and at a time appointed by the Department, from £10.00 to £9.50.
The fees payable for goods vehicles over 3,500 kilograms maximum gross weight which are required to have a full inspection under Article 81 of the Road Traffic (Northern Ireland) Order 1995 (where driving of a defective vehicle on a road is prohibited) are now divided into 5 categories.
The fee amendments for full inspections are as follows—
(a)for a vehicle in Class III or IV (other than a minibus) and for a goods vehicle of 3.500 kilograms maximum gross weight or under from £17.50 to £17.00;
(b)for a rigid vehicle with 2 axles from £28.00 to £25.00; and
(c)for an articulated vehicle having a 2 axle drawing vehicle from £32.50 to £27.50.
The fee for a 3 axle rigid vehicle remains unchanged at £30.00 and the fee for a 4 axle rigid vehicle and an articulated vehicle having a 3 axle drawing vehicle remains unchanged at £32.50.
