TPMS-icon-amber-01What is TPMS and what does it do?

A Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is a system which monitors the pressure in your vehicles tyres. If the pressure falls below 20% of the required pressure, the driver will be alerted to an issue by an alarm and icon on the dashboard.

What are the legislative implications?

A functioning TPMS is now mandatory on all new European vehicles.

  • November 2012 – Car manufacturers began to fit new type vehicles with a tyre pressure monitoring system.
  • November 2014 – It is a legal requirement for all vehicle manufacturers to factory fit passenger vehicles with a TPMS.
