Edit.
Latest update see Two new MoT lifts going into operation


See full story All MoT tests suspended with immediate effect
All MoT tests for cars and light vehicles in Northern Ireland have been suspended with immediate effect.

The Driver and Vehicle Agency (DVA) said inspections of lift faults in test centres did not provide "sufficient assurance" on the effectiveness of ongoing repairs.

An inspection of all vehicle lifts in NI's MoT centres previously detected "signs of cracking" in 48 of 55 lifts.

MoT exemption certificates are being issued so motorists are able to drive.

The DVA said anyone scheduled for a car or light vehicle MoT on Tuesday "should not attend".

Test on heavy goods vehicles and buses will continue.

"Not Ideal" - Probability not helped by the fact that cars & SUV's have put on more weight over the years....

But good idea in "NI" that the Government test cars, not a garage with a vested interest...??

Same cars are not causing same issues in mainland UK.

Our NI members have made many comments about NI system at meets.
Mostly, to wide eyed, disbelieving UK members (Disbelieving as in the what the,,,,).

But, having to suspend ALL MOTs in a nation?
Incompetence at it's best.
All those fails arising at the same time.
