it says cars motorcycles 6 months
                 hgv             3 months

i am not sure what our phgv group falls into but taking in info is not my best thing


possibly someone could look at it and confirm what it says

PHGV is a vehicle tax class.
A motorhome is not an HGV as far as body types are concerned it is a Motor Caravan. A Motor Caravan is a class 4 MOT vehicle and the extension of the test for 6 months covers class 3, 4 5 & 7 vehicles i.e it includes motor caravans

Does that includes all motorhomes Ray, even those over 3.5t?

Yes. A vehicle registered as a Motor Caravan is MOT Class 1V irrespective of MGW.

"Class IV — Cars, including 3-wheeled vehicles more than 450 kg unladen weight, taxis, minibuses and ambulances up to 12 passenger seats, Goods Vehicles not exceeding 3,000 kg Design Gross Weight (DGW), motor caravans and Dual Purpose Vehicles."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MOT_test

Note: P-HGV vehicle tax class has nothing to do with MOT class. A MH over 3500kg MGW and registered with body type Motor Caravan is Class 1V MOT.

Thanks Ray and Pete. That will be brilliant for us, as our MOT is always due in the middle of July. It has meant we have had to return home from abroad in the past to get the MOT done. If things don’t change again before July, it will mean it will now be a January MOT. We are never away in the van then, so that will be much better for us. 😁

There was nothing to prevent you getting a mot in January in any event. A test can be done at any time but only 30 days in advance to retain the anniversary date

I know that thanks Ray, but we were reluctant to waste 6 months MOT if it wasn’t necessary.

Until last year we tended not to be in Greece in July anyway, as it was too hot, but last year it would have been nice to have spent an extra week or two in France on the way home. - We went back for two months in September instead! The change of date, if it happens, will just give us a bit more flexibility.  😁
