    Hi folks,

    Our first MOT is due, ours not the vans, so what's needed please?

    Is it like the car one?

    Can we take it to the same place as the car?

    Does it cost thr same?

    Cheers for any help,

    Andy

    Oh you mean its the first time YOU have taken it in, hee hee. Its the same MOT as a car so any garage that can take the weight and yes the cost is the same.

    all motorhomes are class IV....even 7500kg+ American RV's...which is the same as a car and can be MOT's at any MOT station with a suitable weight rated lift and large enough access/head room.

    the cost is the same as a car...currently around £54 full price but many offer a discounted price around £33 to £38.
    tell them what length/weight/height it is when booking so they can say if they can fit it in or not.

    Yes, the first time I got ours done my local garage said they couldn't accommodate it because they didn't have the space. They told me where to get it done. I was running late on the day because the place could not be found in the street I had been told. I lster found that the street had been closed off and divided in two! Anyway, when I eventually found it they took one look and said they would not be able to raise it on ramp as their roof clearance was not high enough. All this after being given the siaz of vehicle (quite small, as motorhomes go) 6mt long x 3 mt high. So test cancelled and had to find another garage to book with. :Sad:

    Ous is on a Fiat, so Jen rang the Fiat dealer, who told her they couldn't accommodate the height and (politely LOL) told her exactly where to go - so that's what we did !

    If they can't MOT the things how the hell do they repair em?
