The aim of the paper is to point out the inevitability of the proof-load tests for the real and correct behavior of bridge structures in ultimate limit state and maximum allowable deformations in serviceability limit states. It is needed to point to the most consequences of resistance, reliability, durability and lifetime of the bridge structures. Using the proof-load tests for new bridges is prescribed by the Slovak standard STN 73 6209.
