I just had similar issues with an F350 dually, registered here when new but been in Spain & storage for 5 years so no recent MOT. Local MOT place said might be class 7 but it's over the 3500kg weight limit so that was out, eventually found a guy on another forum who is an advisor for VOSA, he told me normal class 4 MOT, classed as a heavy motor car (no weight limit) & gave me a couple of names to mention to MOT place if they argued. The only problem then is that you have to find a "normal" MOT place that can mot something that weighs that much as most regular mot station ramps only take 3 tonnes.
From here http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1988/52/section/185 "heavy motor car" means a mechanically propelled vehicle, not being a motor car, which is constructed itself to carry a load or passengers and the weight of which unladen exceeds 2540 kilograms,
