nieprawidłowości skutkujące niezaliczeniem (negatywnym wynikiem) przeglądu/kontroli MOT


Explanation:
Słownictwo można dostosować według preferencji. Chodzi w każdym razie o to, że odchylenia wymienione w rubryce "Advisory Information" nie powodują, iż pojazd nie zalicza przeglądu, jednak są to wciąż kwestie/zalecenia wymagające uwagi.

Advisory items - elementy pojazdu, na których stan techniczny winno zwrócić/zwraca się uwagę / elementy pojazdu, dla których zaleca się uzyskanie porady
---

As pointed out in the MOT Inspection Manual, it’s considered best practice to advise the presenter about:

- any items which are near to, but which have not yet reached the point of test failure
- any peculiarities of the vehicle identified during the inspection
- any defects on non-testable items which are found during the inspection procedure

An advisory must be useful to the vehicle owner for keeping their vehicle roadworthy; or clarify a significant aspect of the vehicle, such as a missing passenger seat. It’s important to remember that inappropriate advisories can reduce the resale value of a vehicle or result in unnecessary repair work.

Evidence shows that in many cases testable advisories have become overused, sometimes with the same advisory being used year after year. We may be partly responsible for this due to the wording of some advisories; such as a component ‘slightly worn’ or ‘slightly corroded’.

Before issuing an advisory for a ‘slightly’ worn or ‘slightly’ corroded component, consider whether it meets the guidance in the Manual; eg, is near to, but has not yet reached the point of test failure.

Similarly, consider whether it is necessary to select items from the non-component advisory list such as “undertrays fitted obscuring some underside components” where they are known to be standard fitment on the model of vehicle tested.

As part of MOT Modernisation and the new EU directive we will be reviewing the concept of advisories and their wording.

If the vehicle has passed its test, issue an advisory document explaining the nature of the defect with the VT 20. In all cases dangerous defects should be clearly explained to the vehicle presenter.

Other Defects
The vehicle presenter should be notified of:

• Any items which are near to, but which have not yet reached the point of test failure.
• Any peculiarities of the vehicle identified during the the inspection, for example front passenger seat not fitted.
• Any defects on non-testable items which are found during the inspection procedure.
Advisory items should ideally be noted on a numbered and dated sheet, such as a checklist, a copy of which should be retained by the VTS. A reasonable alternative to this practice is acceptable.
