CVR testing will resume tomorrow

Commercial Vehicle Roadworthiness (CVR) testing will resume tomorrow (Monday).

That’s according to Minister for Transport, Shane Ross who was responding to questions from Kerry Independent TD Michael Healy-Rae.

Initially the CVR testing will be for vehicles with a test due date prior to March 28th, and will resume fully over subsequent weeks.

Meanwhile Cllr Jackie Healy-Rae is calling on the Transport Minister and RSA to look an alternative way of conducting driving tests, which Shane Ross said would not be resuming early.

Cllr Healy-Rae says when doing a motor bike test, the tester follows the learner and gives instructions through a headset, he believes something similar could be done with car testing to ensure physical distancing.
