What is a Class 4 MOT?

A Class 4 MOT is a test to check the roadworthiness of vehicles aged three years and older.
 

Class 4 MOTs are suitable for cars, small vans and caravans weighing less than 3 tonnes. If your vehicle is larger than this, you’ll need a Class 7 MOT.


An MOT on a manual Class 4 vehicle has to be carried out annually by a mechanic authorised by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), like ours at Protyre.


It’s not the same as a service, as it doesn’t check the vehicle’s general condition and it only assesses the elements on the day. To keep your car working optimally, it’s best to book your MOT and service together.


How much is a Class 4 MOT?

The cost of an MOT varies depending on the type of vehicle you have. The maximum amount car owners can be charged for their MOT is £54.85. That’s because in the UK, the cost of MOTs is regulated by the government.
 

At Protyre, we believe in high-quality, low-cost MOTs. That’s why our MOT tests for Class 4 vehicles cost as little as £29.99. Book online today and receive a further £5 off your next MOT – it’s well worth doing if you’re looking to cut down on maintenance costs.

Do I need a Class 4 MOT?

In the UK, if your vehicle has been on the road for three years, you’ll need an MOT. This needs to be renewed annually, so you’ll need to make note of when your current MOT expires.
 

If you have a new vehicle, its first UK MOT date will be three years after the date the car was first registered.


If you’re not sure when your last MOT was, you can find out when your next one is due by performing an MOT certificate check. You’ll normally be issued with a certificate to keep safe at the end of your MOT.


If you can’t find it, don’t worry – you can always use our MOT expiry checker

What is the difference between Class 4 and Class 7 MOTs?

The MOT test ensures that your car, 4x4 or van can meet minimum requirements in terms of environmental standards and road safety. Should you fail to take your vehicle for its MOT every year, you will face a fixed penalty if you are caught using it on the road once your certificate runs out.

Depending on the vehicle you own, you’ll need a different type of MOT.

A Class 4 MOT is the most common one. It’s the standard MOT that’s carried out on passenger cars and small vans. A Class 7 MOT is similar, except it’s used for private and commercial vehicles weighing between 3 and 3.5 tonnes. Since Class 7 vehicles are heavier and typically carry loads, a Class 7 MOT has more stringent checks, such as checking the stopping distance of the van.

Both types of MOTs take roughly an hour and Class 4 MOTs can be undertaken at any of our certified garages. All MOTs will be carried out in accordance with the Class 4 MOT manual and testing guide.
 

What happens if my vehicle fails its MOT?

Although it can be disheartening if your vehicle fails its MOT, you’re not the only one. From 2018 to 2019, 33.6% of Class 3 and 4 vehicles failed their initial MOT. If it happens to you, you have a few options.

Firstly, if your car doesn’t pass, you’ll be issued with a VT30 ‘Refusal of an MOT Test Certificate’. This will include the reasons your car didn’t pass. Quite often, these are small things such as worn tyres or faulty windscreen wipers. You should hold on to this as it’ll tell the garage why you didn’t pass if you need a retest.

What you do next is up to you. You can either:

  • Drive the car until the certificate expires if you have some time remaining on your existing MOT. However, this is only if it is roadworthy. You’ll still want to get the issues fixed as soon as possible.
  • Drive your car to a garage for repair. If you use your car for anything other than this when the MOT is expired, it will invalidate your insurance and you can be fined up to £1,000.

If your car fails its Class 4 MOT with us, you can leave it with us to be repaired and retested within 10 days. That way, you won’t have to pay anything extra.

If for whatever reason you feel your MOT has been failed without good reason, you can launch an appeal. However, it can be impractical as you won’t be allowed the car in the meantime.   
 

What do I need to bring to the MOT?

To ensure everything runs smoothly, you’ll want to bring a few bits with you. These include:
  • Your current MOT certificate - This will show us when your last MOT was. If you can’t find your certificate, you can contact your previous MOT centre for a new one. If this isn’t possible, we can simply look it up on our database when you arrive.
  • V5C form - If your car is having its first Class 4 MOT, bring its registration document. 
  • Wheel keys - Your car will likely have specific keys that unlock the wheel nuts. We need to access the wheels to perform the MOT, so please bring these with you.
