MOT (PTI) Testing Frequency in the UK – November 2008
The Department for Transport in the UK has published an evidence-based review of the frequency of roadworthiness testing of cars in the UK. It concludes that a pattern of 3.1.1 testing, which is the current pattern of testing cars in the UK, is strongly cost-effective, and they have no plans for making any change, for example reducing to the EU minimum pattern of 4.2.2.

Final Report of the IDELSY Project – 31st December 2005
Reducing the number of road accidents and road fatalities within the European Member states is one of the main targets of European, National and local traffic policies. Achieving this goal has become an increasingly urgent and challenging task with the enlargement of the EU and the accompanying increase in passenger and commercial traffic.
Driver assistance systems and other complex electronic controlled systems improving the safety of vehicles are state of the art. In that context, the project IDELSY, Initiative for testing of electronic systems, shows the possible options for a significant increase of reliability and safety of such systems and therefore the safety of European road transports systems as a whole.
