Class 4, Class 5 and Class 7 MOTs

If your vehicle is three years old or more, then you legally have to get an MOT to continue to be able to use it on the road, to ensure that your vehicle meets the minimum requirements to be considered safe to use, both environmentally and mechanically.

There are different classes of MOTs available depending on what type of vehicle you have. Class 4, Class 5 and Class 7 MOTs are the most common MOT classes and you will need to identify which MOT class your vehicle sits in before booking a test.


Class 4 MOT

A Class 4 MOT is the most common type of test and here is a rundown of which vehicles need to get a Class 4 MOT:

  • Cars that carry up to eight passengers

  • Motor caravans
