Surely any garage that has the facility/ability to test class 7 can do your MH ? Makes no difference to them that you are class 4 ?

They have to be "authorised" to do class 4.

Is 5200 the actual Wright or the MAM or gross as stated on the plate & V5?

Hi 5200kg is the actual weight which is well below plated weight on taking gas bottles out (2) tools & cloths etc. I have I have got the weight down to 5000kg so by removing the
rear hydraulic lift should get the vehicle below 5000 kg garage lift capacity don't really want to do that but its looking like my best option

Dont know where you are in south west Scotland bout have you tried AyrMot?
They do classes 4&7 so should be able to help. Where was it last tested? Can you not take it back there.

Both my sons are testers, both said the tester that can do class 7 can do class 4.
So why not use a commercial test station?
They suggested OP to ring DVSA (VOSA) for their way to deal with the problem

Hi all many thanks for your replies I normally use VOSA testing stations but according to VOSA when I tried to book a test they no longer do Class 4
