    Hi all, does any one know if it is legal or illegal to swap my front single passenger seat to a double, there is only enough bolt holes for the single seat so I would have to bolt and weld the new double seat in, any advise would be appreciated. regards p

    There is nothing illegal in what you propose. and has been done many times before

    Is your chassis cab available as an option with twin front seats,(Sometimes just as a builders wagon) if so the holes will be there (maybe hidden) for the correct seat, If possible the correct seat and belt set up should be obtained and used.

    If you are inventing a twin front seat option, then spreader plates will be reqd under the floor areas at the new fixing points,
    Maybe your insurer should be your first point of contact, they may not like your idea.

    Depending what, if any, seat numbers have been entered in the past at MoT time
    the adition of another or what may look like a correction on the MoT data base, might be seen as an imput error and may produce a paper enquiry from DVLA asking for the correct number of seats, this is nothing to worry about its purly an admin exersise checking on testers imput
