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.

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

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%.
