    Take as much as you can! You'd kick yourself if there were a 2 minute job needed for a pass and you didn't have the tool with you (OK, leave the piston ring gap file behind!)

    At my last IVA I used:

    Socket set, screwdrivers (head light alignment), trolley jack, wheel brace, sticky backed foam, calibration instructions for speedo, files, kitchen sink.

    This is what I took to my IVA



    Just kidding, I rammed the car full of every single tool and spare part I could squeeze in. All I ended up using was a screwdriver to twiddle the idle mixture screws on the carb by a hair to pass emissions.

    Well done Dave.
    About three weeks currently to get it registered. I reckon.
