we book in half hour slots,helper helps,checks oil, logs detailsinto emmisions machine,some take less than half hour,07 plate 10k cars gonna take less time than the p reg tranny:shock:

been a while, but just wanted to say im a small independant and rely on a few traders to keep busy. Trouble is traders never ever book in, and you can guarantee theyll ring in a morning and want a test that morning. And not wanting to lose business we just tell em to drop it round and leave it with us.

I normally book in every hour with retests, but alately its been every 30mins or so and 15 for retests, im pretty quick on the pc so  this doesnt hold us up.

Is 30 minutes acceptable nowadays?

Tell em its in your/their interest to keep within the Vosa timescale....(there is no such thing)........But average is around 51 mins.....;)

tell the gaffer you will be doing as you are now , 1 an hour .
if you worked at a dealership testing 3 year old cars all day long then 45 minutes a test would be a doddle , it isn't when you are testing older & often badly maintained stuff .
the other option is to take as long as it takes & then they will have to realise that this plan of 45 minutes each will not work .:?
