New TPMS Brochure - 2015/16

TPMS is the hottest topic for garage and fast fit depots this year. 

REMA TIP TOP are a partner you can trust and we have constructed a service provision tailored to your needs with a simplicity that will make TPMS confusion and complexity a thing of the past.

The Background

Commission Directive 2010/48EC confirmed that since November 2012 all NEW type M1 vehicles will be required by law to have a pressure based TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System) installed.

From November 2014 all type M1 vehicles sold in Europe are required by law to have a TPMS system installed.(Category M1:Vehicles designed and constructed for the carriage of passengers and comprising no more than eight seats in addition to the driver‘s seat).

TPMS and the MOT Test

TPMS is now being tested as part of the MOT road worthiness test. At present, any vehicle manufactured before 2012 that has been fitted with a TPMS will receive an ‘advisory’ on their test if a fault is detected or the TPMS dashboard light is illuminated. This will be recorded on the MOT test certificate. However, as of 2012, MOT legislation underwent review and an illuminated TPMS Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) will now result in an immediate MOT failure on vehicles fitted with TPMS on or after 1st January 2012.
