Heavy vans have the worst MoT pass rate

Heavy vans have the worst MoT pass rate of any vehicle type seen on UK roads, so commercial vehicle workshops could get new business if they aim their direct marketing at van users, according to the Retail Motor Industry Federation. 


Data from the UK’s Vehicle and Operator Services Agency show vans between 3.0 and 3.5 tonnes had failure rate 44.7%, the worst of any vehicle in the year 2007-2008. 


Stephen Coles, head of the RMIF’s MoT technical operations says that high failure rate clearly shows a lack of maintenance.  “Owners may not realise that prevention could be cheaper than cure in the long run.  This means that with correctly targeted marketing, commercial vehicle repairers could generate new business.”

aide automotive offer workshop test tools for commercial garages, BrakeCheck, ABS Sesnsor Tester, Midtronics Battery Testers and diagnostics tools are mention a few.


To improve commercial vehilce maintenance any of the above products would be of value to a commercial workshop stated Matthew Burke Sales Director of aide automotive ltd.
