What Is A Class 4 MOT Test Centre?

A class 4 MOT test centre is a garage that can MOT vehicles that require a class 4 MOT test, which is your standard vehicle test. It does also apply to most types of vehicles, referred to as the ‘common class’ of MOT tests.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s your 10-year-old Jaguar that needs its yearly MOT or your Mini which needs its first test. Our team of expert mechanics are ready to help, but what is included in a class 4 test?

Which Vehicles Need A Class 4 MOT Test Centre?

If your car is 3 years or older, it does need to have an MOT every year to be road-legal. In addition to being a legal requirement, it is a great way of identifying issues with ageing cars. It is important to catch any problems before they can cause a breakdown or potentially cause an accident, in addition to ensuring the vehicle matches the minimum environmental and safety standards. A class 4 MOT tests most vehicles with up to 8 passenger seats, including taxis, hire cars and motorhomes.

If you’re trying to book an MOT test for your van, it might be confusing which MOT test you should be booking. A common misunderstanding is whether you need to book a class 4 or class 7 MOT test for larger vehicles, like vans or smaller commercial vehicles, as the requirements are different.

Whether your van needs a class 4 MOT test centre, or a class 7 one depends on your vehicle’s weight.

You will need a class 4 MOT test if your vehicle weighs less than 3,000kg. If it weighs between 3,001kg and 3,500 kg then you will need to book a Class 7 MOT test. You can find the total weight of your vehicle by checking the owner’s manual or checking with the manufacturer.

What Does A Class 4 MOT Test Include?

An MOT test isn’t just an annual service check, but rather a comprehensive service of the vehicle. The test will assess the vehicle’s:

  • Tyres and wheels
  • Brakes
  • Exhaust system and emissions
  • Vehicle structure
  • Fuel system
  • Steering and suspension
  • Lights and electrics
  • Seat belt and SRS
  • Seats, doors, mirrors, and horn
  • Any presence of rust or damage
