What Is A DPF?
A DPF (Diesel Particulate / Particle Filter) is a filter designed and integrated into the exhaust systems of diesel vehicles to trap & remove Diesel Particulate Matter or Soot from the exhaust gasses of the diesel engine. Much like the Catalytic Converter of conventional petrol engines, the Diesel Particulate Filter works to remove harmful toxins and lower the emissions of your diesel engine making it more environmentally friendly.
The aim is to remove 80% in the average diesel particulate (soot) emissions and although a great concept, it brings about a whole new line of problems. Everyday we’re receiving calls from customers and garages in & around London when their DPF (diesel particulate filter) light is illuminated on the dash, indicating that there is at least a partial blockage in the DPF system.

DPF Removals & MOT Laws
Since 2012 MOT’s have become more stringent, however, it is not a requirement by law to have a DPF (Diesel Particulate / Particle Filter) in place. It is a requirement that the vehicle should meet its standard smoke test and if you are removing the DPF which in turn negatively effects the results of your smoke test then it WILL fail the MOT.
If done correctly, a DPF removal will not cause your vehicle to fail an MOT and when coming to us for a DPF Removal service, we guarantee this. Check out our smoke-correction article for more information.
