GBMUD Posted October 5, 2006 Share Posted October 5, 2006 An SVA test tests compliance with Construction and use regs, is that right? It is NOT an MOT and an MOT, if needed, would have to be saught seperatly. Keeping the Disco's identity and not attempting to defraud anyone, would a 100" hybrid with, for example, Disco chassis, running gear and a S3 body need/pass an SVA test? What about S2a bodywork - metal dash, old style door hinges etc.? If they would not need an SVA, what about if it were an 88", that would be a chassis mod and therefor would need one right? I am guessing that it would be a commercial vehicle test. Am I right in thinking that I could SVA a rotten old MOT failure of a Disco (as long as it met the spec for C&U), dump the body, fit a S3 body and MOT it and still be, more or less, legal as the vehicle has had an SVA test and passed an MOT? I know that this may not fit withing the spirit of the law but how about within the letter or the law? Que a disagreement...
