I had a Nissan Navarra (or whatever the crewcabbed pickup is they do) booked in for first MOT a couple of weeks ago. The gross weight put it into the dual purpose vehicle category (3210 kg IIRC) BUT how the heck do I know the unladen weight of it? I'm guessing it would be stated on the log book which wasn't presented at the time?? Assuming a payload of around 1000 kg this would be over the weight stated in the manual so we didn't test it, apart from that it was the size of a small county anyway and would probably have been too big for the ramp.

Hi Guys,

need some advice here,;)

Had an LR/Defender 110 DPV in today, when logging on was advised that "class" of vehicle had changed from last year? ie from V11 to 1V.

Phoned "Siemmens" helpline and they advised to phone "local area office" they, advised to phone an 0800...?? number which is in "Wales", "They", Advised a look at SN5 2009, which states "Early Next Year", from the original SN Issue date in "July 2009".

To CMA, I logged off the vehicle "test registered in error"":shock:

"Company Provider" For Vehicles Leased to the "National Trust" phoned us and protested their corner.

I advised them of SN5 2009, then my boss phoned and said tha our local VE had told him that It had not been implicated yet???:?:?:?

wes.
