Do I need a MOT class 4 test as a car owner?
If you are a car owner, you do need a class 4 test because this test is for vehicles older than 3 years and weigh more than 3,000kg.
Are MOT tests a legal requirement?
It is a necessary requirement for all vehicles. But for class 4 vehicles it starts three years after the date of registration of your car. Means if your vehicle is older than 3 years and you drive it on a public road, you should get its MOT after every 12 months. You can even get charged if you drive a vehicle that is not MOT tested by authority.
So you must get your MOT test done every 12 months. You can book your appointment with the AR service center for the best experience. And do remember that it won’t replace your yearly maintenance of the car.
