Enforcement Technology Testing

On behalf of the Home Office, Road Safety Support is responsible for testing the reliability and accuracy of new road traffic enforcement technologies that are in the Type Approval process.



This respected position puts us at the heart of enforcement technology development in the UK and our team of testers are among the most skilled and experienced in the world in this field.

Home Office Type Approval (HOTA) is recognised as one of the world's most stringent standards. All speed and red-light cameras must receive HOTA before evidence from them can be admissible by certification in the UK courts.
