The Consequences of removing a D.P.F

25 October 2016

Independent Garage Associations Steve Coles warns test stations about the possible consequences of D.P.F removal

The Independent Garage Association warns garages about DVSA action to those offering DPF deletion services.

Some garages are known to offer their customers DPF deletion services but Steve Coles, head of MOT at the Independent Garage Association (IGA), has reminded garages that it is an offence to drive a vehicle that has been modified in this way.

He said: "The potential penalties for failing to comply with Regulation 61a are fines of up to £1,000 for a car or £2,500 for a light goods vehicle.

"There has been talk of tighter smoke test values for DPF equipped vehicles to help ensure the DPF is functioning, something the DVSA say will be looked at when time allows.

"In the meantime, the DVSA is stating its aim to take action against any business that is authorised for MOT testing who also offers a DPF removal service outside the MOT.
