Safety Belt System
Test Method 2 (turning circle)

This method requires a flat open area of private road, sufficient for the vehicle to be driven in a continuous circle on full steering lock.

  • The driver should wear the safety belt provided and the belt webbing must be correctly adjusted, with no slack.
  • The passenger should occupy a rear seat with the safety belt correctly adjusted, with no slack.
  • Start the engine and, with the steering on full right-hand lock, drive the vehicle in a continuous circle at 16 km/h (10 mph). Do not exceed 16 km/h (10 mph) for this test.
  • When the speed is stable, the passenger should attempt to slowly extract the safety belt webbing from each safety belt retractor in turn. If the vehicle motion sensitive lock mechanism is operating correctly, it will not be possible to extract the webbing.
  • Any safety belt retractor from which it is possible to extract the webbing during this test must not be used. A new safety belt must be installed.
