Brake & Suspension Testing Safe-T-Stop


Kelly's Automotive offer the lastest technology in brake and suspension testing.
Call us today to book your vehicle in.

You never know when you will need to stop in a hurry.  Most  of us trust that our car’s brakes will work effectively when we really need them to, and rely on regular service inspections to check that they are in good working order.   Safe-T-Stop testing is different.  You can trust your family’s safety to a Safe-T-Stop test.  It provides an added safety check that goes beyond a  general inspection and road test to scientifically test your  braking capacity and ensure maximum stopping performance.  

Saving you money and peace of mind

Safe-T-Stop performs vital safety checks on the brakes, steering and suspension on your vehicle that other testing methods miss.

Accurate and credible testing

Your Safe-T-Stop test is carried out on the  electronically accurate PlateTronic test equipment.   Approved by Roads and Maritime Services, Queensland  Transport, Vic Roads, VTNZ and meets NIM European  standards, Safe-T-Stop test lanes measure and  simulate a vehicle’s brake performance – just as it  would happen in an emergency stop on the road!  It’s  a test you can really trust, and you’ll even get photo  proof that the checks were run on YOUR car.

What can you expect from your  SAFE-T-STOP check

A Safe-T-Stop check will give you an accurate report  on your  suspension and brake  analysis, so that adjustments can be made that will  deliver you real savings on your motoring and ensure  your brakes operate at peak performance.✔Detects dangerous side-side and front-to-rear brake imbalances that will cause a vehicle to spin out of control.✔Measures ride quality by testing the rebound of each shock absorber, from firm to soft✔Measures corner weight and acts as a weighbridge✔Gives accurate printout of the vehicle’s performance and photo proof that the test has been completed on YOUR vehicle

Benefits of a  SAFE-T-STOP check

:A Safe-T-Stop check will give you an accurate and  detailed report that will enable you to make the  adjustments necessary so you will:  ✔Know that your vehicle will stop straight and in the shortest possible distance in an emergency✔Know that your shock absorbers are working correctly for optimum suspension performance✔Avoid future hassles and inconvenience of brake, suspension or tyre trouble


The test report reveals not only how your vehicle is  performing under every day driving conditions, but  also what would happen in an emergency braking  situation.  The Safe-T-Stop test gives both you and your service  centre the vital information to address any defects and  ensure your brakes are in tip top condition.  It can  mean the difference between a safe stop and an

Suspension Shock Absorber Test Report

Each corner of the vehicle is tested for rebound. 
Results are displayed in a ‘ride quality’ scale from very soft to extremely hard. 
Less than 50% (very soft) or more than 90% (very hard) will fail the test. 
Maximum difference from left to right corners is 25%.
