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.
Upgrade your AutoStop Maxi brake meter to include GPS!
The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) QLD is updating a requirement for brake testing.
As of September 2021 it will be mandatory for Approved Examiners to keep a copy of the brake test results, including GPS location, time and date, when undertaking LV, HV and MC inspection types.
To make sure you are compliant, purchase our AutoStop Maxi® brake meter with the upgrade that includes GPS location. If you already have our standard AutoStop Maxi brake meter, you may be able to upgrade to have GPS!
Some of the older brake testers may not be able to, so call our friendly service team to see if yours can be upgraded.
