Well the votes from our poll have been counted and the majority of our readers think that touring caravan MOT’s are a good idea!
206 of the 357 people voted in favour of MOTs, although that works out around 58% – so opinion was definitely divided.
As we reported in September, the European Commission has put forward proposals for changes to Periodic Roadworthiness Testing which includes the introduction of MOT style tests for caravans 4 years old and over. This could be adopted into UK legislation by December 2013.
We’ll be sending your feedback and poll results to the industry’s trade body, the National Caravan Council. We want to thank everybody who voted and/or commented!
We’ll keep people informed on if and when this proposal is adopted in the UK.
This month’s poll
We’re running a bit more of a light hearted poll this month that we’d love you to vote in too:
Where is your favourite place to visit whilst touring in the UK?
