Automated Test Lanes (ATL)


Many garages looking to integrate an new mot bay to their garage consider an automated or automatic test lane or "ATL". This is because an ATL bay offers a repeatable method of assessment and the test is based on the vehicle in its "as presented" rather than a tabular condition.

There are a number of benefits to ATL testing. From a garages perspective the most important benefit is the elimination of the assistant from the mot test. Where assistants were available, they can now be re-allocated to other tasks but for sole traders; the opportunity now exists to operate an mot station whereas this was previously impossible.

A GETECH automated test lane package contains all equipment required for a station to become approved within the MOT scheme. We also include, free of charge, a host of support services to enable the project to come to fruition in the shortest time possible.

We supply complete bay solutions for either Class 4 or Class 7 MoT testing and we have equipment approved for use both on a traditional vehicle lift, or, where headroom is limited, an inspection pit.

Our MOT bay projects are designed to have the minimum involvement from you throughout the process of gaining the approval - this allows you to run any existing business interests whilst we concentrate on achieving the approval with the Vehicle Inspectorate.

Given the current published regulations, garages may also wish to consider the subtly different One Person Test Lane package rather than for a full blown ATL as, since GETECH equipment is completely modular, it is possible to "upgrade" to an ATL at a time of your choosing from a less expensive initial acquisition.

Essentially whatever your specification, we can build a bespoke solution for you!

With such flexibility in the design of our products, why would you purchase your ATL from another manufacturer?

Class 4 Automated Test Lanes

Class 4 ATL test bay packages are available to suit both lift based and inspection pit installations. With a complete package of equipment that exceeds DVSA/VOSA requirements, the opportunity exists to further upgrade our ATL package to a combined bay to allow the testing of Class I/II motorcycles although for pit based ATL's care must be taken with the position of the roller brake tester to ensure that a combined bay can be approved in the future.

Class 7 Automated Test Lanes

Where the space is available an upgrade to Class 7 testing is often desirable as it adds the scope to capture a larger market; class 4, class 5 lightweight as well as Class 7. Automated test packages are available for lift and pit based installations and further upgrades are possible to allow motorcycles to be tested due to our clever modular design ethos.
