An MOT test is designed to ensure every vehicle on the road is safe for the driver and other road users. Therefore, MOT tests are thorough by design and will look at all critical safety aspects of your vehicle.

The tests carried out in a Class 7 MOT are very similar to a Class 4 MOT. However, the tests are slightly more in-depth for a larger vehicle. Additional checks as part of a Class 7 test include further investigation on whether the tyres are suitable to carry extra weight and brake efficiency tests for additional safety.


What Do I Need to Bring for My MOT?


You do not need to bring anything to the garage (besides the vehicle) to have an MOT test. We are able to find all necessary information about your car on our databases, so you don’t need to worry.
