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 Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) is responsible for ‘licensing’ both the MOT test station and the MOT tester.
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
