10-year-old truck tyre ban in Northern Ireland now in effect

The Northern Ireland ban on tyres aged 10 years and older on the front axles of HGVs, buses and coaches, and to the tyres on all axles of minibuses when fitted in single configuration, is effective from today, 13th November.

The restriction also applies to re-treaded tyres, where the date of re-treading will be used to determine the age of the tyre.

The new regulations apply to drivers or operators of non-compliant vehicles on Northern Ireland roads, regardless of the country of registration.

As previously advised, the changes implemented in Northern Ireland align with the changes introduced in Britain on 1st February, 2021.
