We're thinking of installing an ATL, and as we weren't sure what was involved we visited another site to view the equipmment and test procedure.

Before carrying out the parking brake test the tester placed chocks behind both front wheels to prevent the car from riding out.

Due to our proposed layout I can forsee problems getting out of the car to fit chocks while the rear wheels are in the rollers due to the lack of clearance between the drivers door and the rear lift post.  

I'm interested to hear from other ATL testers as to how often they use chocks and wether they have door clearance issues. A scissor lift has been suggested but I would prefer a 4 post lift if possible.
