The MOT Test
The law requires that everyone who uses a vehicle on the road must keep it in a Roadworthy condition at all times. Once a year, roadworthiness is checked in the interests of road safety and the environment by the test we know as the “MOT”.
The MOT looks at some important items on your car to see that they meet the key legal minimum requirements at the time of test. You should be aware that the MOT certificate is not a guarantee of the general mechanical condition of a vehicle.
We are able to MOT Class 4 cars and vans up to 3000kg.
MOTs can be carried out while you wait but pre-book only.
An MOT certificate confirms that at the time of the test, without dismantling, the vehicle met the minimum acceptable road safety and environmental standards required by law. It does not mean that the vehicle is roadworthy for the life of the certificate. The test does not cover the condition of the engine, clutch or gearbox.
If you have lost or damaged your test certificate you may purchase a duplicate test certificate from us. You’ll need to give the vehicle registration number and either the original MOT test number, or V5C document reference number – this is on the V5C registration certificate. The maximum fee for a duplicate certificate is £10 or half the test fee if this is less.
If your MOT has expired
You can’t drive your vehicle on the road if the MOT’s expired. You could be prosecuted if caught.
The only exception is if you’ve already booked an MOT and are driving your vehicle to the test centre.
