UK Government statistics have revealed that nearly 50% of all class 7 goods vehicles between 3-3.5 tonnes fail their annual MOTs.
This suggests that just under half of these vehicles (three years and older) are not roadworthy – highlighting why daily vehicle checks are essential for all commercial vehicles.
