About Class 3 Vehicles

Class 3 vehicles are 3-wheeled vehicles, up to 450kg unladen weight. This includes three-wheeled motorcycles and small, lightweight vans, but does not include motorcycles with sidecars. Class 3 vehicles require their first MOT after 3 years.

Class 3 vehicles covers both Category L2 vehicles and Category L5 vehicles:

• Category L2 – A three-wheeled vehicle classed as a moped, with a maximum speed of 45km/h or under. The vehicle does not exceed 50cc for a spark ignition engine or 4KW for other power units.

• Category L5 – A three-wheeled vehicle that exceeds 50cc and has a maximum speed of over 45km/h.

If your vehicle exceeds 450kg of unladen weight, it is covered in Class 4.


Why Is It Important To Have A Class 3 MOT In Milton Keynes?

Three-wheeled vehicles can present some significant challenges in terms of road safety compared to traditional cars and motorcycles.

This includes different structural designs, handling, and safety features. These elements must be thoroughly and regularly checked to ensure that your vehicle is road safe, and to flag up any potential issues.

It is critical that owners of Class 3 vehicles invest in regular MOT testing to ensure that their vehicles are safe to drive on public roads and meet the legal requirements necessary to do so.
