PMI Intervals Extended

OPERATORS can now extend time between Preventative Maintenance Inspections (PMI) up to 50% to ease the pressure on workshops and operators, according to the latest coronavirus guidance issued by the Office of Traffic Commissioners.
The statement said: ‘PMI intervals can be extended by up to 50% with a maximum of 17 weeks, whichever is the lesser, if it’s not possible to obtain the PMI under the normal inspection arrangements.’
It means a six weekly PMI could now take place at nine weeks, and applies to all standard licence holders and specific restricted licence holders carrying out essential work ‘where normal maintenance arrangements are affected by Covid-19’.
