FAQs

What is a Cat B vehicle?

A category B vehicle is one that cannot go back on the road. A Cat B vehicle can be repaired but until October it will require a VIC check. You will not receive a V5 certificate until after the VIC test.  A Cat D can be repaired and does not require a VIC check.

What is a VIC test?

A VIC test is a visual test held at a local VOSA test station. It is looking for stolen vehicles and not the repair. The vehicle must have a current MOT if it’s to be driven to the test but if its trailered no MOT is needed.
