Webfleet brake performance meets DVSA standard

The Webfleet Brake Performance Report has met the Driver Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) standard for Electronic Brake Performance Monitoring Systems (EBPMS).

The Webfleet Brake Performance Report is engineered to monitor trailer brake performance remotely.

The component of Bridgestone’s fleet management platform allows fleet operators to monitor the status of their trailers’s brakes.

According to Bridgestone, continuous data capture from a trailer’s EBS (electronic braking system) not only enhances road safety, but also helps cut the cost of fleet downtime by reducing the need for traditional quarterly rolling brake tests.

The solution is said to make it easier to identify trailers with EBS issues, with a graphical report enabling performance values and trends to be tracked over time.

“This achievement affirms our commitment to delivering industry-leading solutions and marks a significant step in enhancing road safety and operational efficiency for UK fleets,” said Beverley Wise, Webfleet regional director for Bridgestone Mobility Solutions.

The announcement comes in the wake of the DVSA's updated Guide to Maintaining Roadworthiness, which has served to reemphasise the importance of brake testing.

From April 2025, laden roller brake tests or EBPMS will be the only accepted methods for brake testing, with few exceptions.

Beverley Wise, Webfleet regional director for Bridgestone Mobility Solutions, said: “By incorporating the reporting solution into their operations, businesses can look forward to a more streamlined, efficient, and safer fleet management experience.”
