What is a Diesel Particulate filter (DPF)?

A diesel particulate filter (DPF) is a device fitted to a
diesel vehicle which filters particulate matter (PM) from exhaust gases. It does this
by trapping solid particles while letting gaseous components escape. This type of
filter has been in use for over 20 years, and many variants exist. These filters enable
reductions in emissions which help meet European emission standards, improving air
quality and thereby health standards.


Legal requirements and the MoT test

From February 2014 the inspection of the exhaust system carried out during the
MoT test will include a check for the presence of a DPF. A missing DPF, where one
was fitted when the vehicle was built, will result in a MoT failure.
A vehicle might still pass the MoT visible smoke emissions test, which is primarily intended to identify vehicles that are in a very poor state of repair, whilst emitting illegal and harmful levels of fine exhaust particulate.

It is an offence under the Road vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations
(Regulation 61a(3))1 to use a vehicle which has been modified in such a way that it no longer complies with the air pollutant emissions standards it was designed to meet. Removal of a DPF will almost invariably contravene these requirements, making the vehicle illegal for road use. The potential penalties for failing to comply are fines of up to £1,000 for a car or £2,500 for a light goods vehicle.


Has your DPF warning light or Anti-Pollution warning is on? Don’t leave it, (here’s what it looks like). Seek professional advice, find out all your options, consider which is the best for you and get the problem fixed. Not dealing with it will only cost you more in repairs bills and can be hazardous.

Once your DPF warning light comes on, the DPF will be quite blocked already. Your garage might recommend Forced Regeneration or maybe a quick shoot up the motorway, more than likely not going to fix the problem, they work more as a preventative maintenance. So we recommend the following options for you:

  • Regeneration of DPF
  • Replacement of DPF
  • Cleaning of DPF
  • Recalibrate DPF
  • Remove DPF

Ideally, your options depends on what you plan to do with the car, the type & condition of your car, usage and your budget
