Kurt Hobbs Coachworks are proud to have achieved the approval of the WVTA governing body. WVTA (Whole Vehicle Type Approval) came into force at the end of October 2014 and has had a major impact on the Commercial Vehicle and Bodybuilding Industry.
It requires all manufacturers of Commercial Vehicles and Bodywork to be approved by the relevant UK and European authorities. Without an approval the completed vehicle cannot be taxed and registered for use on the roads.
Greg Hook, Type Approval Manager at Kurt Hobbs Coachworks has invested a great deal time and effort over the past 5 years, working towards WVTA. Greg’s knowledge of WVTA actually spans over many years and the approval has added great value to the success of the business.
Whilst it has involved significant costs and changes in working procedures to obtain the approvals, it has greatly benefitted Kurt Hobbs Coachworks as a company, by introducing a complete Quality System and Conformity of Production. Ensuring the right components are fitted and the bodywork is built to match the customer's exact requirements.
At Kurt Hobbs Coachworks we understand the importance of dealing with repairs quickly and efficiently.
The VBTA was setup in 2013 as a way to simplify the route to Whole Vehicle Type Approval for bodybuilders.
At Kurt Hobbs Coachworks we take pride in building new commercial bodies to suit our customers needs. We can guide you through the initial stages of design, helping you choose the specification that's right for your vehicle and your business.
