The time for your motorhome’s next MOT check could be fast approaching. If it is, then a good idea would be to learn about what the test involves. With this information, it will be easier for your vehicle to pass on the first attempt. The outside of the motorhome is important but you shouldn’t forget about the inside.

Checking vital parts of the interior

On the inside, the MOT test covers every seatbelt, including child restraints/seats, and the door latch. This inspection is a visual one for faults on stitching that is fraying or showing signs of repair, and webbing. It also looks for anchorage points and buckles, and cuts or deterioration.

For those seatbelts that join to your seats, damage or cracks on the seat frame would be a cause for failure. The driver’s seat has to be adjustable and secure. The seatbelt load limiters and pretensioners, and the airbags will all also be inspected.

Views and chips

Another issue that you can’t have is an obstruction of the view through the windscreen. If the windscreen has chips or cracks, you will have to take care of them quickly. In many instances, your insurance will cover the repairs.

Refusal to test
