What is the Purpose of the Brake Test?

The purpose of the brake test is to see if a vehicle’s braking performance is consistent with your experience of other vehicles of a similar make and model. Most vehicles will achieve 0.6g (light vehicles) with the rear brakes inoperative, so you should look for a lower than average reading for that make or type of vehicle. Lower than expected readings indicate that something is wrong. It is important that the brake tester is seen as a diagnostic tool and not just a pass/fail gauge.

When the brake test is completed, you can print a copy of the test result showing the peak deceleration and attached to your test report.

The AutoStop Maxi® Brake Meter (tester) does not show a “PASS” or “FAIL” as the regulations for a pass or fail are different in every state and territory. Check the regulations in your area to see how it effects your testing requirements.

Upgrade your Brake Meter with a purchase of NetBrake® software and set the standard in your area, and it will show a “PASS” or “FAIL”. See the full capabilities of NetBrake® software, and additional inclusions.
