being boring what pm never got one. hoping -FRYING TONITE went without hitch..
service brake was not binding.. underside saw caliper handbrake lever stuck in the on position whilst the lever was worked from top side & on completing the underside inspection demonstrated to owner presenter the said problem by moving the caliper lever to the off position prior to this whilst checking the bearing on the associated wheel it was freewheeling no bind.
On the rbt service effort was fine, recorded it, then AFTER applied park brake.. there was effort but then it didnt release fully ie it was binding.
Being specific the service brake was not at fault it was the park side of it that had the issue. hear what you say fail it on service brake binding ok..but it aint being specific

Section B of the Testing Guide gents..

a. Do not give another person information that they would not otherwise have access to, this includes test result information.

Plain and clear enough in my opinion. Publishing registrations on public forums clearly breaches the above.

A "publication" is exactly what it says, an article produced for public consumption so clearly no breach of Date Protection.

Copyright could be a whole new issue Paul, but we are not going to go there.

Testing Times we report about the failure rate since the new Manual took effect last May. At the same time we asked DVSA about how many vehicles failed with ‘Dangerous’ defects – and found that when extrapolated to a full year, that would be more than two and a half million vehicles. What an astonishing vindication of the need for the MOT Test. Yet that is only one of a number of reasons that the MOT should never be reduced from the current annual inspection

Data Protection gents.

As testers you could be liable for publishing details of MOT test results to the general public.

As a forum attached to a trade publication, the owners could also be called to account.


Please refrain from posting vehicle registration in future.

assuming its also a service brake(and given the caliper arms seized)I assume foot+handbrakes are the same linings therefore the service brake is binding,id just fail it on that,advise the caliper arm so they know the probable cause and sleep easy at night,why beat yourself up over it?worse things to worry about,bigger fish to fry,trouble is-FRYING TONITE!

that would be my guess as well,how difficult is it to press a button and enter a number?the mere fact that they consider this more of a priority than answering peoples querys/concerns pretty much says it all for me.its known as displacement activity.what happens is the human brain when faced with distasteful problems or concerns will focus on summat less unpleasant and generally unrelated to the immediate problem in preference to actually facing said problems.this would of course imply dvsa acting like a living entity which given the blogs content gives us an immediate clue as to the location of the anus:shock:
