The MOT test checks that your vehicle meets road safety and environmental standards.
You must get an MOT for your vehicle by either:
(i) The third anniversary of its registration or
(ii) The anniversary of its last MOT, if it’s over 3 years old.
Some vehicles such as taxis do however need to be checked at one year old.
An MOT lasts for a year. The date it runs out is printed on the last pass certificate.
You can get an MOT up to a month (minus a day) before it runs out and keep the same renewal date.
The test does not cover the condition of the engine, clutch or gearbox, although if your vehicle does require further checks, our friendly mechanics will be more than happy to discuss your servicing requirements also. To find out more about what is tested during an MOT, please click here.
You can be fined up to £1,000 for driving a vehicle without a valid MOT, so please contact us today. We work with approved MOT Test Stations, who comply with the necessary requirements.
