Public weighbridges

A public weighbridge is a weighbridge that is open for members of the public to use to weigh vehicles.

Operator's of public weighbridges are required to hold a certificate of competence issued by the Chief Inspector of Weights and Measures. This ensures that they can perform their duties competently. The certificate can be obtained after performing a test. No one can operate public weighing equipment unless they hold a certificate.

Public weighbridge operator's tests are conducted by virtue of the Weights and Measures Act 1985.

To book a test, the following information is required:

  • employer's name and contact number
  • address at which the test is to be taken
  • details of the equipment on which the test is to be taken, including the make and type of indication

Contact us for further information, to find out the costs or to book a test.
