MOT Test

The MOT, or Ministry of Transport test, is a crucial part of ensuring that the cars on the UK’s roads retain a basic level of roadworthiness. 

Here are some key features and benefits of an MOT: Annual Requirement: Vehicles that are more than three years old are legally required to take an MOT test every year.

Roadworthiness Check: The test checks the vehicle’s roadworthiness.

Retest: If your car fails its MOT, then you’ll be able to rebook in for a partial retest at the same test centre, which often comes for free or at a reduced rate.

Safety: The MOT ensures that vehicles on the road are safe and meet a minimum safety level.

Environmentally Friendly: The test checks emissions, helping to protect the environment.

Legal Compliance: Having a valid MOT certificate is a legal requirement, and driving without one can result in fines.

Maintenance Check: The MOT can help identify potential issues early before they become serious problems.

Remember, if your car fails its MOT and its certificate has expired, then a garage can’t let you drive away as normal.

Remember, if your car fails its MOT and its certificate has expired, then a garage can’t let you drive away as normal. However, if your car’s certificate is still valid (if it’s still within the expiry date on your test certificate), then you are able to drive it away, providing it hasn’t had any ‘dangerous’ defects listed against it.
