Re: IVA Fail ..

Well done soon be there, as one of my wise experienced wing men Mike Pass said to me when mine failed first time "now you have a list to work through".

I have heard all the best ones fail first time

Re: IVA Fail ..

I'm just astounded by this. If this was required in the States, 70% of the cars would be taken off the road.

Question: Do they reference the "to do" list when you take it back, or do you risk another complete IVA by a different person, and a different set of corrections? Wondering if they cannot reference any other issues once the deficiencies are noted.

Sounds like a case of having to find something, I am sure you know the drill, go through the list, play the game, smile sweetly and you will soon be driving down that road with a big grin on your face.

My car went through the earlier test called SVA so I can only confirm what happened about 10 years ago.

At the retest it was a case of get the snag list and tick the items off one at a time, list finished get the piece of paper that allows registration. They did not look at anything else other than on the list.

Yes it is a serious test that I believe has 5 hours inspection allocated. Mainly safety items and compliance, eg lights placed in correct locations.

Ian

Re: IVA Fail ..

Hi John,
Well done ...... I know the list is frustrating but at least they are all minor things in the general scheme of things.
Thanks for letting us know there were no problems regarding having no side windows.
To make you feel better ..... my car passed at the 3rd attempt as the list of minor things were worked through.
Keep us all informed as to how the re-test goes.
We look forward to seeing the car on the road as the summer returns.

Re: IVA Fail ..

Hi John,
Congratulations on a ‘good’ fail
I’m a bit surprised about the comment on the side repeaters being too high. The regs state a min height of 350mm and a max ht of 1500mm, so it’s difficult to understand what the issue is
Anyway keep up the good work, you’re nearly there

Regards
Andy

Re: IVA Fail ..

Very positive John and best of luck for next week
How did you set up the brake bias or was it good fortune?
I put a Kirkham Cobra through IVA in 2015 and that gave me the confidence to have a crack at putting my MDA GT40 through BUT the challenges are a whole lot different, some similar and more straight forward to comply but some an expensive rethink!
All very rewarding though.

Best of luck

Mark

Re: IVA Fail ..

I found an easy way to pass the emergency brake test.
Put it in third as opposed to first gear. With all the hp theres no way the engine is not going to override the brake. I did it in third it killed the engine when I dumped the clutch. Inspector happy.

Hi Lloyd,

Unfortunately, the UK brake test is done on a brake roller tester. I think this is the hardest part of the test to pass I have found my brake results which show the results from different forces applied to the foot brake, and hand / emergency brake results. Needless to say aI failed my first IVA test on brakes as the attached results show,

Re: IVA Fail ..

I'm appreciating now how the challenge is not in the building of the car, but in passing the IVA.
