The IVA Test is a mandatory test for any vehicle imported into the UK from outside the EU and less than ten years old. The tests are carried out by DVSA staff at the IVA test strip.

The IVA (Individual Vehicle Approval) test is a legal requirement for any vehicle imported into the UK from outside the EU and less than ten years old. This is a check to ensure that imported cars meet safety and environmental standards before they can be used on UK roads.

The IVA test is carried out by the UK Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). It assesses various aspects of the car, including its design, emissions, lighting and other safety features, to ensure it meets the required standards for use on UK roads.

Imported cars usually pass the IVA test if they:

  1. New vehicles that have not previously been registered or used in the EU.
  2. Vehicles whose characteristics have been significantly changed compared to the factory ones.
  3. Vehicles imported from outside the EU.

Passing the IVA test confirms that the car meets UK standards, making it legal to drive on British roads.

If a car fails the IVA test, then the car requires modifications or adjustments until it meets the required standards.
