the vehicle DODGE RAM 1500 DAYTONA is being used in the UK.

Expert:  Rob replied 3 years ago.

hi.

unfortunately they are not the requirements are as follows

  • Rear indicators are separate to the brake lights and the right colour (this
    is different to US cars)
  • this colour is amber for uk cars
  • Front indicators are the right colour and have repeaters on the side of the
    vehicle. This may require small indicators added to the side of the car and
    holes drilled in the wing as appropriate to accommodate them.
  • A red rear fog light is fitted - US cars often don't have these.
  • The correct white parking lights are present.
  • Headlights are pointing the right way - check before you bring the car in
    that this does not mean a costly set of new headlights!
  • Tyres match the advertised top speed of the vehicle. Tyres have a code (R, S
    or T rating) on them which matches a theoretical top speed. If the rating is
    lower than the manufactirers advertised top speed - you'll need new tyres (for
    the SVA anyway!)
  • if you need any more advice i will be pleased to help.

    regards rob
