Vauxhall is now recalling some Corsa and ADAM models that have been built from 6 February 2014 onwards, including some ’63’ number plates.
This is also because of the potential problem with the steering system.
The recall notice issued last Monday (29 September) had only applied to cars built from May 2014.

Taking affected vehicles on test
If your vehicle is affected, you won’t be able to take it on test without written proof that the vehicle has been checked by the manufacturer and remedial work carried out if needed.
DVSA examiners will accept documents from the vehicle manufacturer or the manufacturer’s appointed representative or dealership.

If you’re affected by this and any of your pupils have a driving test booked within the next 3 working days up to and including Friday 10 October, they can cancel or re-arrange it free of charge.
They can do this by contacting DVSA practical test enquiries and booking support to re-arrange; telephone 0300 200 1122 (Monday to Friday, 8am to midday).
For tests taking place in more than 3 working days’ time
If any of your pupils have a driving test booked to take place in more than 3 days’ time, they’ll still have to give the usual 3 clear working days’ notice to change or cancel without losing their fee.
