Do I need to weigh my Peugeot Partner?

I have a Peugeot Partner Van that was imported from UK. It is VRT'd and due for a commercial test. Do I need a weigh docket before it is tested, or before it is taxed at the commercial weight? Its mass in service is 1,406kg according to the V5.

Hi John,

The quoted weight on the V5 should be sufficient as the only thing that matters come inspection time is the maximum gross vehicle weight, the limit for which is 3,500kg. As long as you’re not carrying a two-tonne load (which the van wouldn’t take anyway) you should be fine.
