NI Banning Tyres Aged 10 Years and Older on HGVs, Buses, Coaches and Minibuses

Today; Thursday 5th October 2023, the Safe and Accessible Travel Division at Northern Ireland’s Department for Infrastructure gave advance notice that week commencing 13th November 2023, the Department will introduce a ban on tyres aged 10 years and older on the front axles of HGV’s, buses and coaches, and to the tyres on all axles of minibuses when fitted in single configuration.

The restriction will also apply to re-treaded tyres, where the date of re-treading will be used to determine the age of the tyre.

The new regulations will apply to drivers or operators of non-compliant vehicles on Northern Ireland roads, regardless of the country of registration.

As previously advised, the changes being implemented in Northern Ireland will align with the changes introduced in GB on 1 February 2021.
