IVA pass this morning

I failed first time around at the Beverley test centre in December for a few items as follows,with the solutions:-


Needed a nut cover on fuel pump as it was just contactable underneath - cover fitted

I had to demonstrate how the rear fog light was fixed to show the screws wouldn't penetrate fuel tank - changed screws to nylon.

Viewing angles on headlights, the side light couldn't be seen from opposite side - changed 5 inch shells to 7 inch ones.

My rear brake cylinder sprung a leak on the way to the test - new calipers fitted.

Everything was tested apart from the braking efficiency's and balance.



Above items were checked off this morning and the brakes were tested.

I came home with the certificate and a big smile.

As always a big thank you to everyone who helped me along the way, it's taken 6 years!

Very well done, all those long hours at weekends and evenings were well with it. With spring not to far away, the time to enjoy it is getting close.

Excellent, great timing for summer......

I've put one car through an SVA and one through an IVA, both times a wonderful drive home with a pass certificate, what a feeling....

First registered drive out is something to look forward to.

Cheers
Ian
