If a vehicle is presented at a VTS that is not authorised to test that class of vehicle, the driver should be told to go to an appropriate station (unless the defects are absolutely straightforward, e.g. a light not working)

I believe the manual informs us that:

The vehicle should go to a test station capable of testing the class of vehicle. However, for minor items it can go to any class of test station.

A Guy pulls up on  the  forecourt on a motorcycle, for a roadside vehicle defect form to be filled in, stamped etc, quite funny really, as have just done one for a ClassIV for registration plate, busy weekend for them boys, lol.

Rear "L" plate deteriorated, A rather minor item in Class II, The only local motorcycle garage is and has been Closed for two days, so the motocycle owner arrived and requested Us to deal with this one.

Being a ClassIV Station, And to err on "The"  "CYA" side  We declined,as We are only ClassIV, and not ClassII.

Does anyone know wether or not a different Class Testing Station Is allowed to fill out Police Vehicle Defect forms, for Minor Items?
