A young lady presented her Focus for Test.
I tested it and all was well apart from an OSF tyre tread.
When I'd finished testing I checked the spare in the boot and it was just legal so I swapped the wheels and passed on a PRS.

However I now needed to "advise" on the OSF tyre and the VTS device would not let me!
(Can I just say I wanted her to have a new tyre, I offered to fit one but she declined...no money).

In the end I advised on "Front" tyre near limit Rather than "OSF".

Not sure why the VTS device would not let you advise?

Enter test results as normal, press PRS instead of failure, and then in the box to the right, just type in "tyre close to legal limit";)

Or you could use the manual advisories button and type in (4.1D1) tyre worn close to the legal limit;)

Hi Kev, "fail the tyre", log-on minutes later after fitting spare and then advise.;)
