Does a new coachbuilt MH have 3 years grace before it's first MOT
I belive it does mate
if it has a garage and is designated a living Van ie class 7 test then it may be at year 1
This info has not been confirmed
just somthing in the back of my mind,
Best ask an expert then
Isn't there a thread on here about this
Errr I think so John. I'll have a look.oh:
See http://www.ukmotorhomes.net/motorhome_mot.shtml for even more confusion.
Sorry Geo couldn't resist and sure your right
Mine it for MOT at the ministry in Cardiff next Wednesday
The answer is it depends.....
For further information read this, you need to read it all as it changes due to questions asked...
damn you are quick.....
The same bloke who tried to write the legislation for living vans was responsible for the A frame a driving licence rules as well, I take it
I still cant decide if my answer was right or wrongoh:
Wheres a bl**dy expert when you need one
You were correct as far as you went, but it also depends on
a: vehicle weight
b: Living van or not ( you covered this base )
c: Your honesty when taking in for MOT
We could do with inviting experts from different fields onto the forum to answer these difficult questions. Maybe we should have a poll.
Got the info now from the web link, Geo seems to be correct, and as he is our MOT expert that will do for me.
Maybe you should read the link in its entirety, because under certain circumstances Geo was right and in others it could prove to be wrong, it depends on vehicle weight.
Here is the relevant line from correspondance with VOSA
However, many living vans are outside the scope of MOT testing as they exceed 3,500kgs in weight. These heavier living vans should be tested at a VOSA goods vehicle testing station under the Goods Vehicles (Plating and Testing) Regulations 1988. Such vehicles must be tested annually from the first year following registration.
Is that unladen weight?
Sorry mate .. 748 couldn't be as** voting last time round .. do you think this will change.,. Q for another poll ..
