Class 5 Bays - Format Options
Class 5 is for the testing of private passenger vehicles, ambulances, and motor caravans with 13 or more passenger seats. It is possible for some Class 7 testing stations to obtain approval to test Class 5 vehicles with a DGW of up to 5,000kg, known as Class 5L.

Pit Bays - Class 5
A Tecalemit pit bay is ideal for workshops with the height requirements for Class 5 vehicles. Typically, only a drive-through layout is acceptable where approval is sought to test articulated vehicles. The installation of the pit is completed by vehicle play detectors, radius plates, and a jacking beam, resulting in a sophisticated testing capacity. Additionally, workshops benefit from a proven DVSA-connected roller brake tester and emissions tester, as well as supplementary equipment from Tecalemit, to fulfil the DVSA's requirements.
