  1. Anthony Martin says:

    If MOTs are brought in, our buying a caravan will be non existent. MOTs are all about money and greed. It would destroy the industry

  2. Richard Plummer says:

    Geoff porter doesn’t know what he’s talking about. A yearly service is fine no mot needed. But if you travel and the caravan has not been serviced for over a year then it should void the caravan insurance. This should be mandatory. Its the people who think there experts that are causing the problems.

  3. Jeff Shaw says:

    I would say that if you have your van serviced yearly by a reputable company and all the checks are carried out and recorded then it is like a mot. I can’t see what other checks would be carried out for the mot.

  4. John Davis says:

    I like the idea of proof of servicing – it may help premiums to drop (somewhat naive perhaps?)

  5. Keith taylor says:

    MOT only shows a vehicle has reached the absolute minimum standard to be on the road at the time of test it does not mean it is safe for a year or is road legal. Then there is no DVSA recognised way of carrying out a brake test on the overrun system for the roller brake testers

  6. D Aldom says:

    I have my caraven serviced every year this covers both the inside and outside.would an MOT cover all the electrics and gas supply if not then it should be made compulsory for insurance to have a caravan serviced every year.

  7. Patricia Broadhurst says:

    No To mot but yes to compulsory service every year

  8. Jay Punshon says:

    Incentive for insurers. 5% discount on proof caravan has been serviced within 6 months of renewal.

  9. David Dickinson says:

    Yes I think caravans should have a MOT some you see on the motorway have been laid up all winter and don’t even look as if the tyre pressure has been checked and just waiting for a accident to happen obviously there’s responsible caravaners out there.
