It would be advisable to have the vehicle available for a whole day, and you would also need to have the ability to add weight to the vehicle for final calibration.
Once fitted you will have access to ongoing weight changes during loading and unloading.
The unloading weight checking is especially useful as without this any part loads that are to remain could cause an axle overload, even if the gross weight is still within the vehicle limits.
When vehicle weight is being checked by DVSA or the police they will look at axle weight compliance just as robustly as overall vehicle gross weight.
The best way to be sure of operating legallt is to have Onboard Weighing fitted.
The cost of fitting Onboard Weighing Systems can be recovered with just a few compliance checks that do not result in a fine for breach of vehicle weight guidlines.
