Retail Motor Industry Federation members became aware on July 31.
VOSA quickly invoked ET status and by utilising the number 6802310 for intermediate certificates they ensured that affected MoT testing stations could continue to test vehicles. For future manual testing, members must first check with the VOSA help line to ensure the situation has not changed.
VOSA has advised that MoT testing stations contacting their help line can anticipate a waiting time of approximately five minutes.
The cause of the partial crash seems once again to be connected with a data download last weekend. VOSA are confident that the cause has been identified and that the system is now returning to normal.
