Van MOT tests are required for all van and commercial vehicle owners and they must be carried annually, unfortunately, MOT testing isn’t something that you can decide to do, it is a legal requirement, and failure to have a valid MOT certificate for your vehicle can result in consequences. Today’s regulations stipulate that all van drivers must have annual MOT tests carried out on their vans or commercial vehicles to ensure that the vehicle meets current safety requirements, as well as ensuring they are roadworthy. If you have a brand new van or commercial vehicle, then it may not require an MOT test for three years, but once the van or vehicle is 3 years or older you will have to book it in for an annual MOT test.

Frequently Asked Questions about Commercial Van MOTs

You can have your commercial van put through an MOT test up to 1 month before the expiry of your current MOT.  If you do decide to have the MOT test carried out before the expiry of your current one your MOT will be valid for 13 months. 

A thorough MOT test on commercial vehicles involves checking dozens of aspects of the vehicle.  VRS Penwortham will check everything from the brakes, fuel system, lights, mirrors, seatbelts, windscreen wipers and exhaust system.  You can rest assured that a commercial van MOT test will thoroughly check your vehicle to ensure it is completely safe for you and your employees.

Yes, checking the oil is a fundamental part of the MOT test.  Without checking the oil we would not be able to check and test the emission levels.

It is illegal to drive a vehicle without an MOT certificate, and if your vehicle fails its MOT then it will not have a valid certificate.  You can only drive your vehicle to be repaired, and only if it is completely roadworthy at all times.

If you take the vehicle off the premises, it should be returned within 10 working days and a partial re-test will be completed, this will test the sections that previously failed to ensure the repair is efficient.  Should you return your vehicle after 10 working days a full MOT test will need to be completed and you will be charged for this. Alternatively, you can leave the vehicle with us and we will complete the repairs and then re-test.

Our MOT tests usually take around 45-60 minutes.  If we find that your vehicle needs a repair this can then take longer, especially if we have to get the vehicle roadworthy for you again.  At VRS Penwortham our team will keep you fully informed on the MOT test, the results and the repairs (if needed). Our trusted mechanics’ endeavour to have your vehicle up and running in no time.
