Yipee! it was JAMES Land last year, now more hoops to jump through. Only 488 pages in the new manual + all the guidance notes to read before i can inspect a vehicle.
As if i don't have anything better to do.
Happy New Year!
it's dropped a bit of a clanger here in Germany as Penman trailers because of their classification would not be subject to MOT in the UK. All inspections to be carried out as per the new format, which you guessed it don'e cover Penman.................Yahhyy for new systems!
Just got told today that i've got to get some training on the new format before an Engineering Officer says i'm competent of carrying out inspections.
Have i wasted the last 27 years of my life?
Now i know where all New Labours spin doctors are working, sneaking this out while most people have been on leave or too pissed to care.
Why bother, DSG will probably still be using the old format.
Does that mean that anything that they inspect willl be invalid?
The changes to the MOT manual that were supposed to take effect this month have been put back to June, so why couldn't this have been phased in over a similar period?
Just back from the pub, so i should know better than try to put the world to right!
Has any of the loons that dropped this bomb shell in our laps heard of a warning order or demanding paper copies of the new format before wheeling this out, do they realise the the repucussions at the coal face of competence etc and another register (snigger) I really do dispair yet again at how hard and fast this army is changing from a kind of clanky greasy machine to a knee jerk panic management, obviousy the top has become detatched from the bottom.
I'm equally surprised at the lack of a warning order, but the whole shabang is on the JAMES web site front page so perhaps it was intentional to see who's checking it. No need to order the forms, you can print from the JAMES web site. I'd doubt it will get a delay now, we've started using already, unless they allow both to be used at the same time for a period of grace. Can't see that much difference between the 932W and 932B other than the inclusion of PANTHER, the 933 seems the biggest difference but that has a 'toned' down effect.
