All commercial vehicles require a Certificate of Roadworthiness (CRWs).
The person who presents the vehicle for test MUST bring their Driver’s License or Passport on the day.
You DO NOT need to bring the VLC/Logbook to the test.
When vehicles are tested on time a 12 month CRW will be issued.
A vehicle can be tested up to 30 days in advance of the current expiry date (e.g. expiry 31/03/16, can test as early as 01/03/16).
If a vehicle is late for its CVRT the CRW will only allow for the remainder of time before the last expiry date (e.g. expiry 30/01/2016 but tested 05/05/16, expiry of newly issued CRW will be 30/01/2017.
When a vehicle has missed more than 12 months since the last expiry date, 2 tests will be required before a 12 month CRW will be issued. All commercial vehicles MUST have a CVRT annually even if the vehicle has been off the road and signed off with the Motor Tax office.
A change in ownership will not affect the expiry date of a CRW nor will it be accepted as a reason for a vehicle missing the CVRT. Buyers and sellers of vehicles should be aware of the CRW expiry.
If your vehicle fails the CVRT, you must have the vehicle repaired and re-tested within 21 days or before 4000km, whichever comes first.
A visual re-test does not incur a charge but if an equipment re-test is required a charge is applicable. All details are printed on the fail statement issued by the test centre.
Re-tests should be booked in with the test centre to reduce waiting times and also to make sure you get a booking within your re-test time of 21 days or 4000km.
If you do not return within the 21 days or 4000km, a full test will be required and will incur the full test fee again.
All CVR Test Centres are governed by the Road Safety Authority.
All Pricing for CVRT is law and all Test Centres must charge the same fee.
Your CRW is issued by the RSA and will posted to the Registered owner’s address within approx. 10 working days.
If you did not receive your CRW, you can visit www.cvrt.ie and order a replacement.
Operators can now register on www.cvrt.ie and keep track of their vehicle’s CRW status, renewal dates and even print copies of Pass/Fail statements for their vehicles.
