Commercial vehicle testing was introduced in Ireland in 1980 functioning under the local county councils.
It was called a DOE test or MOT test more recently they changed the name to VTN Testing.
Two years ago the entire network was taken over by the RSA and rebranded CVRT compartmental central – Road Traffic Act 2012.
LCV testing covers any commercial vehicle up to 3500kg Gross Vehicle Weight.
This includes vans, 4 x 4, Crew cabs , carvans , motor caravans , jeeps, pick-ups and campers.
