New Service coming soon: Class 7 MOT

We are reconstructing our MOT test station at Francis Street Services to accommodate testing of commercial vehicles weighing between 3 and 3,5 tonne design gross weight such as vans and high tops.

While Class 4 and Class 7 MOTs are overall very similar and check many of the same areas, Class 7 MOTs tests are slightly more in depth for a larger vehicle. Additional checks as part of a Class 7 test include further tests on whether the tyres are suitable to carry extra weight, and brake efficiency tests for additional safety. Testing of Class 7 vehicles also requires wider loading bays, improved access and larger inspection ramp to accommodate for larger vehicles.

The test station will be equipped with DVSA / GEA (Garage equipment association) approved quality testing equipment including break tester, play detector and headlight aligner.

Look out for updates in late May / early June or get in touch with us for all your Class 7 vehicle needs.
