Acceptance drives and special drives for the automotive industry
Acceptance and special drives are important components of quality management in the development, production, and performance throughout a vehicle model’s life. The organisation and execution of such drives take a lot of time and require an experienced team of professionals. We at VadoTech support you in this.
What are acceptance and special drives?
Acceptance and special drives are special test drives that are carried out after general vehicle testing. The aim is to ensure that the vehicle meets the high standards expected by customers and legal requirements. Acceptance and special drives are often associated with complex requirements, which is why we offer support at VadoTech for the organisation and execution of such drives.
We organise acceptance drives or so-called release drives across an entire country or at specially desired locations. Acceptance tests are carried out to ensure that a new vehicle model meets all specified requirements before it is launched on the market.
Special drives, on the other hand, are special test drives that are carried out outside of normal test protocols to test specific aspects of the vehicle or to test new technologies. For example, special drives can be used to test the vehicle’s emissions under different conditions or to verify the performance of ADAS systems in a variety of different markets.
Our team at VadoTech ensures with comprehensive services that you and your management and technicians can get an accurate picture of the maturity of your vehicles:
- Vehicle planning, import, registration
- Hotel reservations
- Airport transfers for arriving personnel
- Preparation of vehicles
- Provision of freely available driver personnel
- Provision of own technicians to support the drives
- Special requests such as refreshments along the acceptance routes, mobile overnight stays for drives across the country, and more
Why are acceptance and special drives important?
Acceptance and special drives are an important step in quality assurance to ensure that a vehicle model is as reliable, safe, and meets performance standards before it is delivered to customers. Through these final tests, OEMs can ensure that the vehicle meets customer requirements as well as legal requirements and has no defects.
Our expert team at VadoTech has extensive experience in this field. We work closely with you to carry out acceptance and release drives as well as temporary special test drives at desired locations.
What is the difference to general vehicle testing?
General vehicle testing focuses on checking the performance, reliability, and safety of the vehicle in various test scenarios. Acceptance and special drives, on the other hand, specifically serve to ensure that the vehicle meets the high standards expected by customers and legal requirements.
As a test service provider, we support you as an OEM in the planning, execution, and evaluation of acceptance and special drives. Our expertise and extensive equipment allow us to test and optimize vehicles in all aspects. Contact us to learn more about our services.
