it stopped being about roadsafety a decade or more back when proscribed areas came in.the advise sheet isnt to help the presenter or contribute to anything else except covering YOUR a**e.more appeals have succeeded on legal loopholes than faulty tests-we are greasemonkeys not lawyers.

vt32 don't just inform presenters of likely upcoming problems they also protect the n.t's from the v.e saying you missed an item that might have been boarder line at time of test. i.e  nearside rear wheel bearing has slight play , ten days later bearing seizes up due to lack of maintenance i.e shy of grease(not seen on test as no disassemble aloud) your a**e is covered, if no vt32 issued the v.e will say did you test properly. so i always advise testable and non-testable items just to cover my a**e.

Appeal noyices are for pass or fail, if he were to appael against the test it would be that he thought the discs should have failed, and even if the VE agreed and you had advised its got nowhwere to go.

just like to ask other testers if they have had a issue were we issued a vt32 on a vehicle for slightly worn front discs with a pass cert .The client kicked off so much that you would of thought we had smashed his car up . He also insisded he had a appeal notice . All this for a advisory his words were we are ripping the public off and frightening them in having work carried out on there vehicles . He also quoted he wouldnt come here again GOOD!!!!

 



You`re not alone with that issue.  Had customer who became VERY abusive when given VT32, even printed Appeal form for him, that ( unintentionally )wound him up even more as it takes ages to print one off system. Do appeal forms apply to VT32 ? It would seem ridiculous for a customer to appeal on informative ( minor ) advises if the vehicle passed the test in all respects. Customer was `asked` not to come back due to his (witnessed) abusive behaviour.

Wes.

now the machine give you boxes to tick for the previous advises - if the advises have been addressed don't tick - if they haven't then tick the box - if any of the boxes are unchecked a v32 is issued with the pass - if the boxes are all ticked it doesn't

We were told to do 2 copies of the VT32 and keep one on file for 2 weeks so if the vehicle is brought back for retest and only the VT30 was brought in we would still have a list of the advises because BOTH the fails and advises should be retested as the advise items could have become fails in the meantime. Also a new list of advise items should be produced! He also said that all retests should have the brake performance rechecked regardless of the fails? I think that the VE's for each different area have a slightly different view.

The new update has made it much easier to re-issue the advises.

 

Definately annoy car salesmen now. :D

I agree (specially with the second bit :D:D)

I believe you should issue a new vt32 for a retest, the reason is the origial vt32 has the test number relating to the fail and not the test number on the vt 20. If you do a PRS test, you will be prompted to run off two vt32's fist one carries the vt20 test number, the second has the vt30 number

I don't agree with this proceedure, and I don't produce another vt32, as I have banged on about before I'm a mechanic not an administrator, but yes vosa ( correct that SBS ) do expect you to reissue. comes under the  " at the time of the test " umbrella. 

Further it chews up vt32's at an alarming rate. I dont know about the the rest of you out there but I order wads of vt32's, with the slots and never get them.

Our VI guy said the same as NikNaks, retest and re-advise if needed.

Really ?

So if a vehicle failed on minor items - such as tyre / wiper / light, but had a long list of advisories - many of which require the vehicle to be put on the lift / rolling road, etc... The vehicle returns for retestin the next day, are you saying that we should re-check all the advisories and not even be permitted to charge for our time ?
