Obviously, having brakes that function properly is something that every driver considers a priority. Here’s some information on how your brakes should be safely manufactured, fitted and serviced


Performance standards

There are several aspects to ensuring brake safety, including:

  • Brake performance on dry, smooth, level road surfaces
  • Brake performance in difficult weather conditions
  • Required stopping distances and times depending on the mass (in tonnes) of the vehicle
  • Ability to hold the vehicle stationary on gradients
