agreed, got to be a good thing.

the 13pin electrical test is a new one on me, electrics were always just an advisory, even on the '09 update.

bring on trailer MOTs!

Interesting read

Says you'll fail if excessive play in detachable tow bar/socket but it doesn't say if you will fail if you remove your detachable tow bar for the test

I agree though, it's got to be a good thing that the towing system is safe and operational. We get ours checked every 6 months anyway so it doesn't change anything for us.

Does this mean the fee will increase to take account of the extra time/checks ?
