    Advice on what to take on an IVA test

    I’m guessing sockets/ spanners/ screwdrivers etc as well as tie wraps but anything else?
    Thanks

    Thermos of coffee. You’ll be there for at least 4 hours and there’s no snack bar.
    Any documentation necessary to confirm compliance. Fuel pipe invoices etc usually come with the spec detailed.
    Fuel tank must be brim full.

    Sticky backed foam, harness wrap, calibration instructions for your speedo, screwdrivers to set headlight alignment, fuses.

    Proof of engine age, and invoice to prove its yours.
    Photographs of any brackets now difficult to access - pics need to show bracket in car, sufficient that it is YOUR car and not someone else's car.
    Proof that your fuel pipe AND filler pipe are suitable for fuel, unless these already have 'FUEL' printed on them. If the latter make sure this is visible, and if not take pics, as above.

    UJs and extension pieces for your socket set - I had to tighten an engine mounting bolt earlier this week - would have been stumped without these.

    In case an earth needs re-doing: wire strippers, crimps and a selection of earth tags and lucar connectors and a multimeter.

    - and make sure you have the 'DOT' sticker on/near your master cylinder.

    Pictures of seat belt mounting bolts to prove they are high tensile. Saves you having to take the seats out (and scratching the body work in the process.....)

    If Norwich it is handy to know perhaps that there is a screwfix branch about 400yds away westward on the ring road.
    Saved my bacon once.

    Also an ASDA fuel station a bit further westwards to maybe top off the fuel.
