The noise police are out there - is your exhaust too noisy?


The current legal noise limit for car meeting type approval is 74 decibels, and it is it is illegal to modify a car’s exhaust system to make it noisier than the level at which it passed type approval with.

To help monitor the noise of cars they are modifying some of the 8,700 automatic number plate recognition cameras dotted around the UK with noise sensors.

The Department for Transport is clear that if the acoustic camera trials are successful it will recommend the system is developed and rolled out across the country.

Don't get caught out with a noisy exhaust - come and see us today.
