EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Instrument and does not purport to be a legal interpretation).

These Regulations amend the Commercial Vehicle Roadworthiness (Vehicle Testing) (No. 2) Regulations 2013 ( S.I. No. 347 of 2013 ) to provide (along with the Commercial Vehicle Roadworthiness Test Operators and Testers (Amendment) Regulations 2017) for the transposition of the new EU Vehicle Roadworthiness Testing Directive (Directive 2014/45/EU) into national law.

The Regulations provide for the following:

(a) the introduction of compulsory testing for tractors (category T vehicles) being used for a purpose other than agriculture, forestry, horticultural, farming or fishery activity with a maximum design speed exceeding 40km/hr

(b) the mutual recognition of unexpired portions of Certificates of Roadworthiness (CRW) issued by the competent testing authorities in other Member States,

(c) amendments to deal with the calculation of test due dates for vehicles presented early or late for testing, imports and vehicles undergoing post registration conversions,

(d) the introduction of an exemption for vehicles first registered prior to 1 January 1980 which are being used solely for non-commercial purposes which will move to a rolling 40 year exemption in 2020 with vehicles between 30 and 40 years of age (used solely for non-commercial purposes) being required to undergo compulsory roadworthiness testing biennially (every second year) instead of annually from 20 May 2018, and

(e) an introduction of an exemption for vehicles used exclusively on islands.
