Vehicle Testing

From 1st March 2012, campervans need to be assessed for roadworthiness at a Commercial Vehicle Test Centre.

"European legislation requires all vehicles with four or more wheels and used on public roads to undergo regular roadworthiness testing. The RSA is facilitating testing of these vehicles through the VTN network. Motor caravans with a Design Gross Vehicle Weight (DGVW) not exceeding 3500kg are tested at a LGV centre. Those exceeding 3500kg DGVW are tested at a HGV centre."

See www.rsa.ie.

Most campervans can be driven with a normal 'B' car driving licence. If the motorhome is heavier than 3,500 kg then a 'C1' licence is required.
