What is an MOT?

If your vehicle is three years or older, you are required by law to have an annual safety check, the Ministry of Transport test, commonly known as the MOT Test. The MOT scheme is a road safety measure designed to ensure that all cars, motorcycles and light goods vehicles are adequately maintained. If the vehicle fails to meet the required standard, a VT30 'failure' document is issued, and you have up to 5 working days to have any repairs carried out. Items that are not quite a failure but worthy of a mention to you so you can keep an eye on them are drawn to your attention as 'advisory' items.

It is your responsibility to ensure your vehicle is examined every 12 months.

This means you could have an MOT that lasts 13 months. To book your MOT with us, you can call us, and we can arrange a time and a date to suit you.

What should I do if the car fails its MOT?

If the vehicle fails its MOT, it does not meet legal requirements and must be repaired to comply with MOT Test standards. If the car has failed the MOT and is left at A1BN for repair and a re-test, then the re-test is free of charge.

What is checked on an MOT?

Under the VOSA requirements, an MOT test will check the following components: vehicle identification number (VIN), registration plate, lights, steering, suspension, wipers and washer system, windscreen, horn, seatbelts, seats, fuel system, emissions, bodywork, doors, mirrors, wheels, tyres and brakes.
