Well the weight is listed on the van.
So far by RV has MOTs from 2 different places without some special vehicle weight test, so done right or not - I have an MOT. In my book - that means sorted.

LonesomeTwin My weight was taken off the brake test gauge? The DVLA truck place doesn't even have a weighbridge!

LonesomeTwin For weighing my truck, I take it to the local council refuse tip (where the bin lorries go). They weigh trucks in and out and charge accordingly. If you just drive on to it, you can see the reading but they won't give a ticket without payment. No idea how much, I get the info I need and drive off!

Mot

Had the old girl Moted today passed with flying colours.

What I thought was a rip off is the local weighbridge is now charging 20. Last time I used them it was a fiver
