Understanding more about Class 5 MOT Training

Several MOT Testers and Vehicle Testing Stations have recently received penalty points for doing Class 5 MOT Tests when they are not certified to do so or when their Vehicle Testing Station is not permitted to test this class of vehicle. MOT Testers must complete extra training relevant to testing Class 5 vehicles, an assessment, and another DVSA Demonstration Test before you may test Class 5 vehicles. Private passenger vehicles, motor caravans, ambulances, and dual-purpose vehicles with 13 or more passenger seats are classified as class 5. Class 5 light has a Design Gross Weight of no more than 5,000kg. Only a few VTS sites provide the Class 5 MOT, which requires a specialised MOT tester. If an MOT Tester or vehicle testing station is caught doing these tests without the required qualifications or authorization, you and your vehicle testing station might face a 500-point penalty and be banned from testing.
If the MOT tester intends to test a class 5 vehicle, you'll need to take further training for testing class 5 vehicles as well as the DVSA MOT demonstration exam.
