Thanks

I have had a read and from what i can gather the brake testing routine is as follows...

Run both rollers and check for bind on front
Press service brake to just before lock up/max--Hold it---then slowly release pedal
Run both rollers and press service brake until lock and record details

Now repeat all steps on rear wheels for service brake
Run both rollers and check parking brake to lock/max

Does the above seem right?
Am i missing anything out?

The problem with the above method is the wheels slip out of the rollers.
The trainer at vosa agreed to this and said on the demo just say to the examiner you are using the old method and he should be ok. Now im still confused.
