    Which bit of the test can they not do on 4wd is it something to do with brakes aswell. Ya'd wonder why he goes to the bother to disconnect it for the few minutes,

    As they only have a 2wd brake test if they put our cars on it will do serious harm

    Can't go on rollers cause only two which awd needs four. So they have to do brake test on road as can't use rollers which they normally do that's why they bring it for a short spin

    It's no harm to leave a note on dash stating it's permanent awd just to remind them

    They connected a blue reader with brake sign on the screen to the obd or there undearneat the steering wheel column. Then he just drive off and hit the brakes. Thats all.

    There's a sign up in the waiting area to say that there is no photographs or videos to be taken on the premises. Applies to dash cams too obviously 😀

    It's a disgrace really. There shouldn't be any more than 1k coming out of any house regardless of how many vehicles you're taxing.

    If you think about it, it's the economy that suffers really. Wouldn't we all be inclined to do a bit more with our cars if we had a few more € to play around with. And with that, suppliers/mechanics etc would benefit with the extra work going their way the more drivers/enthusiasts would spend. And the government would have more tax take etc from the increase in employment/VAT and all that goes with it....more than they make on motor tax I'd imagine.
