What is an MOT and do I need one for my car?
In the UK the law requires that all vehicles are kept in a roadworthy condition, once a year the road worthiness of a vehicle is checked and a certificate issued upon a pass on vehicles over 3 years old, this is known as an MOT.
When is the MOT due on my car?
Your vehicle will require it’s first MOT once it has reached 3 years of age, from here it needs an MOT once a year for the rest of it’s life to ensure its road worthiness and safety. It is important to remember that the MOT only checks a minimum standard of safety and this needs to be upheld throughout the year and not just achieved for the time of the test, it’s also worth noting that some vehicles have different timescales for their tests such as Taxi’s, commercial vehicles or 8+ seaters.
What parts of my car are checked as part of the MOT?
Registration Plate, Lights, Suspension, Steering, Wipers & Washers, Windscreen, Horn, Seatbelts, Seats, Emissions, Bodywork, Doors, Mirrors, Tyres & Brakes
