MOT TYPE 1 sub base is a crushed limestone or granite. It is usually graded as a 0/32mm or 0/40mm. It is often called different names such as D.O.T. Department of Transport or M.O.T. Ministry of Tranport "Type 1". For the material to be called "Type 1" it must conform to the Ministry of Transport specification clause SHW 803. MOT Type 1 can often be confused for Scalpings but due to its controlled fines content, it has a slightly better load bearing capcity than Scalpings making it the ideal product for; highways, driveways, paths, car parks, tracks, and hardstandings. It conforms to BS EN 13285 categories for unbound mixture properties. If you are putting in a new drive it is best to check that you do not have to use a permeable sub base material such as MOT Type 3 to conform with current legislation.
