In these British Isles, the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency or DVSA has statutory powers to issue MOT certificates. An MOT test is essentially a test for roadworthiness and is essential for any car that is over 3 years old. An MOT-failed vehicle is not legally permitted to ply on roads and will attract heavy penalties if authorities detect them.

Class 4 MOTs

A Class 4 MOT is the most common type of MOT test in Glasgow, as it is a huge industrial metropolis with embedded business districts. Such an MOT test applies to:

  • Motor caravans.
  • 3-wheeled vehicles weighing 450 kgs and above.
  • Dual-purpose vehicles (personal and commercial use).
  • Privately-owned and public service cars capable of carrying up to 8 people.

Most passenger cars in the UK must get a Class 4 MOT pass certificate, known as the VT20 certificate. If you are unsure of whether your vehicle falls in this category, contact our experts at Tradeston Performance.

All commercial vehicles with a DGW (Design Gross Weight) between 3000 and 3500 kgs must pass a Class 7 MOT check in Tradeston to continue plying legally in this part of the UK. The DGW represents the total un-laden weight of a vehicle.
