If you are looking at the feasibility to adding MOT facilities to your garage the obvious starting point is to consider Class 7 testing and the reason is simply that the cost difference between equivalent types of Class 4 and Class 7 testing lanes is relatively small so, although the overall space envelope required to achieve the approval criteria is larger, the additional classes of testing that these bays can see will bring immediate benefits for that small additional spend.
Ordinarily it is the entrance configuration or available headroom which makes Class 7 more difficult to achieve in a garage - however if headroom really is a problem then we can still supply a complete MOT station to suit an inspection pit configuration instead - and if you are driven down this route, you will not be limited inyour choice of bay as options exist for traditional 2-man, 1-man or fully automated test bay requirements.
In order to achieve Class 7 testing it makes sense to employ a dedicated MOT specialist supplier such as ourselves who can work with your architect on new builds or with a building contractor to achieve the space envelope required to test classes 4, 5 lightweight and 7 vehicles -
