Test centre boost for drivers and fleet owners A NEW MoT testing station has been opened at the Broad Lane council depot in Yate, with the facility set to be a major boost for local commercial vehicle operators. The purpose-built station and tachograph centre is an authorised testing facility staffed by the Vehicle Operator Services Agency (VOSA). It has two dedicated testing lanes and drive-through facilities, allowing tests to be processed quickly and reducing the time a vehicle is off the road. Lorries weighing up to 44 tonnes, all public service vehicles and cars can be tested, with specialist tests such as those for the carriage of dangerous goods also available. The centre will be especially useful for those running lorries and buses. Until now, commercial vehicle operators had to travel to Bristol, Wiltshire or Gloucestershire to find such a facility. South Gloucestershire Council will also be

able to cut the mileage of its own lorries and buses as a result of having the centre on its premises. Howard Gawler, vice-chairman of the council, said: “This centre will help local businesses improve their productivity by

bringing the vehicle testing facilities right to their doorstep.” The centre currently operates on two days a week. For more information, email or phone 01454 863920.
