HGV Diagnostics

HGV Diagnostics Doncaster

Anthony Robson Commercials operate a Heavy Goods Vehicle workshop in Doncaster, South Yorkshire with HGV Diagnostics equipment on site to fault find , give technical backup to help identify underlying issues.


We have a range of truck and trailer software to communicate with a vehicles ECU and relay problems back to our computer allowing us to analyse the data feedback. From here, we have technical backup and the experience to be able to find the source of the problems for  HGV Diagnostics. 


After finding the faults and diagnosing the reason it has occurred, the next step is to clear the fault from the vehicles memory.


Nowadays, even with regular scheduled service and maintenance in many cases the use of diagnostic equipment is essential, to reset service lights and check or activate the various systems.


Our engineers have undergone specialist training and with the latest software and dedicated workshop we are confident we able to maintain a fleet and fault diagnose.


The initial step is to connect our diagnostic tools to your vehicle. To do this we use an interface to plug 

HGV Diagnositics

directly into your vehicle which links to our TEXA TXTs. This unit is then linked back to a laptop and gives the mechanic readings.


For trailers we can also use our Haldex diagnostic to connect to the trailer directly and give diagnosis and fault find. 

Following a diagnostic check our machines will talk directly to your vehicle control unit (computer) and the feedback will be sent to our laptop. From here the technicians are able to dissect what component might be causing the faults. This in-depth analysis gives us the advantage of having to check various parts to fault find. 


Along with our skilled technicians and management support we also have technical support on-hand to back-up this service. We believe our diagnostic support is second to none for quality and reliability.

Brake Testing DoncasterWith our in-house Brake Testing machine at our Doncaster premises we are able to see the performance of vehicles/trailers braking systems. The brake tester is capable of giving us individual axle information, after analysing the data we are able to make adjustments if necessary prior to test presentation.


We strategically place load simulators on the rear axles and aim to apply at least 65% of the design axle weight to each axle. We use similar weights to add weight to the vehicle, to help achieve consistency between tests. 


In the case of tractor units only, we are able to offer our own pre-loaded trailer to use for brake testing purposes and MOT presentation. 

MOT PreparationOur Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGV) mechanics are on hand to rectify any defects found on pre-MOT Inspection. We carry stock on many items to help speed up this process and have accounts with many suppliers in the area to source parts to get repairs done as quickly and efficiently as possible. 

Our MOT Steam Cleans are designed to remove traffic film, grease and soil prior to inspection. Our steam cleaning bay at our Doncaster premises has ramps used to raise the vehicle for under body cleaning. 


We specialise MOT Steam cleans for all types of Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGV) and Light Goods Vehicles (LGV) including: vans, 7.5Tonne, Rigid trucks, Tankers, Articulated units and trailers. Our staff are fully trained on DVSA requirements so are comfortable in preparing the vehicle appropriately for its annual test.

The benefits of choosing a HGV Mechanic to take you vehicle for its MOT Doncaster based, if an inspector thinks minor repairs are needed to your vehicle and they can be done quickly and safely they will be allowed to do so, but only if it does not delay the testing of other vehicles.
