Brake and noise testing

We perform brake testing and noise testing on private cars and light lorries which are directly imported for personal use from countries outside of the EU or are remodeled.

The test yields a report which indicates whether the vehicle meets legal requirements. For the registration inspection or the registration of the individual vehicle approval this report, which shows that the vehicle has undergone and passed brake testing and noise testing, may be required.

VTI performs accredited testing impartially and with confidentially according to EN ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and legal and authority requirements.
