Re: VOSA Matters Of Testing 06/11

Both ESP and traction control are integrated into the ABS system. I can see how an ESP fault could lead an examiner to believe there was a fault in relation to the ABS system but as traction control on most vehicles can be switched on or off then there should be allowances made for such.

An inspection of underneath the car should reveal if the car is fitted with an ABS system as there will be sensors, etc, at each wheel.
