There aren't many places that offer an MOT for your Van or Minibus, but Wilson and Co on Manchester Road have recently completed building works to accomodate these larger vehicles!
Once your vehicle is three years old or more then you legally have to take it for an MOT in order to keep it on the road. An MOT tests the vehicle for road safety as well as environmental factors.
A Class 4 MOT is the most common - for the majority of vehicles on the road that carry up to 8 passengers. A Class 7 MOT is conducted on commercial goods vehicles that carry between 3,000 kg and 3,500 kg in weight. In the Vauxhall world this is the Movano or Vivaro LWB or Vivaro Minibus Conversion.
You can book in for a Class 4 MOT at your nearest Wilson and Co or a Class 7 MOT at Wilson and co in Bolton. Our trained technicians will carry out the test which can even be done whilst you wait in our comfortable waiting areas.
A class four and class seven MOT test involves having a range of aspects of your car checked, these include:
• Vehicle Structure, free from excessive corrosion, free from damage, no sharp edges
