How to Check the Condition of Your Tyres

Under the current law, the penalty for tyres worn below the legal minimum limit is three penalty points and a maximum of £2500 in fines per tyre!

For passenger cars and light commercial vehicles with a Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) up to 3500kg, the legal minimum tread depth on your tyres should be no less than 1.6mm, across the central 3/4 of the breadth of the tread, in a continuous band around the entire circumference of the tyre.

Your vehicle should be fitted with the correct type and size of tyre for the purpose it is being used. They should also be inflated to the correct manufacturers recommended pressure for the load they carry.
