ATF Lanes

Without doubt, our ATF lanes are amongst the best in the UK. Leading Companies, Scania, Volvo, MAN and many Independent hauliers have chosen VL Test as their benchmark for Full Commercial Test Centres.
All equipment is Authorised by DVSA for Testing and with the assistance of our Technical Sales Team, we can assure you of not only a Comprehensive choice of equipment to suit your needs, but a truly professional Installation and step by step guidance to training on each particular equipment.

Our Installation team will not leave site until the Customer is fully conversant and happy with the equipment installed.

Civil & Installation Works

We always advise that a reputable Civil Engineering Company is used, in order to facilitate our test Equipment on site. To that end, we use only 2 Companies that necessitate millimetre accuracy on our Installations. It is far cheaper to install once correctly, than for us to stop install whilst the civil works are put right. This increases cost and manhours to the customer and us as a test equipment provider.

On the other hand, if you wish to use your own Civil Engineers to carry out the build site, then we will be happy to assist by providing Schematic drawings and step by step generic instructions.


Our installation services provide you with the assurance needed when investing in your workshop. Our services range from layout design, test lane fitment, ATF installation and much more.
