In the long run, getting your van serviced regularly is generally cheaper than not. This is because not only does your van get all the cleaning, tightening, and lubrication it needs to run smoothly, but it gives us the chance to catch small issues before they become bigger and more expensive to repair. Our van servicing is thorough, rigorous, and professional, meaning any issues are found and fixed for less.

Van’s MOTs are classified into two categories: Class 4 and Class 7. The most common category is Class 4, which corresponds to the MOT requirements for cars. However, if your van is larger or heavier than a standard van, it will fall under the Class 7 MOT category.
Class 4 MOT
The Class 4 MOT is the regular test conducted on typical cars and vehicles that can accommodate up to eight passengers. This category covers a range of vehicles, including taxis, private hire cars, ambulances, motorhomes, camper vans, most vans, and smaller commercial vehicles weighing up to 3,000 kg.
Class 7 MOT
Class 7 MOT tests are specifically designed for commercial vehicles with a gross weight ranging from 3,000kg to 3,500kg. These include larger models of vans, such as the Mercedes Sprinter and Ford Transit. If you are uncertain whether your vehicle falls within this weight range, you can refer to your V5 registration document or handbook for verification.
Vans need an MOT test on a yearly basis. The MOT test is conducted to ensure that the vehicle meets the necessary safety and environmental standards.
A brand new van will not need an MOT test for 3 years, then after the 3 years, it will need an MOT test every year.
Walker Cutting is proud to be accredited by Bosch and we are happy to comply with the Bosch strict code of conduct which includes regular audits, ongoing staff training and a commitment to providing the highest levels of both technical and customer service.
