Roller Team Motorhome MOT, Service & Repair
Roller Team SPECIALISTS
Roller Team motorhomes require an MOT every year if they are over 3 years old, just like other vehicles. If you don’t get an MOT, your road tax and motorhome insurance will become invalid, and your Roller Team motorhome might not be roadworthy either.
The MOT test has very strict criteria set by the DVSA. It involves a comprehensive inspection that will determine whether your Roller Team motorhome is suitable to be on the road, and various safety checks will be completed by the examiner, who is approved by the DVSA, including the tyres, lights, emissions and seat belts.
If they are not up to the required standard, they will be categorised into one of three options: advisories, minors and majors. This will be displayed on your MOT document along with a report of what the examiner has found.
If your Roller Team motorhome weighs up to 3.5 tonnes, it will be in the Class 4 category when it comes to the MOT. If it is larger than 3.5 tonnes, it may be categorised as Class 7. Both categories are very similar, but larger vehicles involve more in-depth tests. The additional checks in a Class 7 MOT include things like checking whether the tyres can carry extra weight as well as testing the efficiency of the brakes.
