Goods Vehicle Testers

If you own a Goods Vehicle, you must send it for testing by an Authorised Tester when it is 1 year old and every year thereafter.

If the vehicle passes the test, you can then apply for a Certificate of Roadworthiness (CRW) from the Motor Tax Office. You need a CRW in order to apply for Motor Tax. The CRW must then be renewed every year.
