Yes, we can source, fit and adapt the height of the headlights to pass the ITV test. At the ITV centre they are very particular about the lights. It can be a fail just on some minor adjustments. We can also source fog and reverse lights if they are needed though these are usually ok on EU cars that are left-hand drive.
What tests are performed at the ITV tests Mijas centre?
After presenting the paperwork at the ITV centre, you wait for your car to be called to a lane. Thereafter they check the headlights first. Then they check the emissions of the car, the tyres including the load of the tyres and the they match. The VIN number, the indicators, the hazards, the beams of the headlights, the washers. Any modifications, the taillights, the fog, the reverse and the hazards again at the back of the car.
Your car is then put on the rolling road where you need to hit the brakes gently until they are at a certain point. Then press the brakes harder which measures the effectiveness of the brakes, this is done for front, back and handbrake. The final part of the test is to drive over the pit where you move the steering wheeel side to side and the ITV technician checks your brakes and suspension.
This is some of the processes before you find out if your vehicle has passed the ITV tests. If a fail they tell you why and you have 60 days to put right the failures. The retest is free. Contact us today
