What is an MOT test?
Originally called the Ministry of Transport test, an MOT is an annual examination of a vehicle that is three years old or more. The MOT tests both the safety of your vehicle and the level of emissions in the exhaust. The Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) is responsible for ‘licensing’ both the MOT test station and the MOT tester.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your vehicle is tested every 12 months. Without a valid MOT certificate, you will be unable to renew your road tax and your insurance may be invalid. Having a current MOT certificate is also a legal requirement in the UK.
Why not get your car serviced at the same time?
The importance of an MOT test
The MOT confirms that at the time of the test and without dismantling it, the vehicle meets the minimum acceptable environmental and road safety standards required by law.
It doesn’t mean that the vehicle is roadworthy for the length of time the certificate is valid. The MOT certificate is also no guarantee of the general mechanical condition of your vehicle.
The test doesn’t cover the condition of the engine, clutch or gearbox.
Your MOT can be done up to one calendar month before it is due; this is to give you time to have any repairs done before the old certificate expires.
Most vehicles need their first MOT when they are three years old, then annually.
What Happens if it Fails?
We can carry out any repair to your car that may be needed to pass the test. You can leave your vehicle in our capable hands and we will phone you with an estimate of the cost before we start any work on your vehicle. This will ensure that there are no nasty surprises with the cost when you come to collect your car. FREE MOT RETEST after completion of all repairs.
