Recommended Inspection Routine
Prior to the inspection starting, check reasons to refuse/decline to test items.
The routine shown is one recommended by VOSA. It is not meant to be exhaustive. Testers must ensure that all testable items are checked in a routine appropriate for the vehicle.
For certain checks the use of an assistant may be essential, there are other checks where an assistant is desirable. It is therefore advisable that an assistant remains with the tester for the whole duration of the test.
