An MOT is an annual examination on cars, other light vehicles (including some Light Goods Vehicles), private buses and motorcycles that are 3 years old or older. It confirms that at the time of the test, the vehicle met the minimum acceptable environmental and road safety standards required by law. However, please note that this does not guarantee the roadworthiness of the vehicle for the duration of the MOT certificate and it is the vehicle owner’s responsibility to ensure that your vehicle is maintained.
Your vehicle can be submitted for test up to 30 days before the due date. Your test will then run from the date of the actual test until one year after the expiry date on your current MOT certificate. If however, you have your vehicle tested before this, then the certificate will only run for one year from the date of test.
We also like to take the stress and worry away from our customers when it comes to remembering when their vehicles are due for its annual MOT test. We do this by sending out a reminder letter a month before it is due, so there is plenty of time to arrange a time and date to bring it in when it suits them.
