The Department for Transport has announced that tyres aged 10 years or older will be banned on the front axles of lorries, buses and coaches using new laws.
DVSA already checks for tyres over 10 years old during roadside enforcement stops. This change in the law will allow it to issue stronger penalties if found at roadside enforcement checks.
This change also means the issue can be covered by the annual test (MOT) in the future.
