Frequently Asked Questions about your MOT

  • Does my car need an MOT?

    The MOT test is mandatory for vehicles which are three years and older and checks that the vehicle meets road safety and environmental standards.

    You must use an approved MOT test centre to get your MOT and as a car owner you must ensure that your car MOT is annually renewed.

  • What if my MOT has run out?

    Book an MOT as soon as possible. Until then, you must not drive or park your vehicle on the road. The only exceptions are when you take it to a MOT test centre or to be repaired.

  • How does an MOT test work?

    The MOT test checks vital parts of your vehicle to ensure they meet the legal standards set out by the DVSA. These are some of the parts tested: Bodywork and Structure, Fuel system, Exhaust emissions and Exhaust System, Seatbelts, Air-bags, Doors, Mirrors, Brakes, Tyres and Wheels, Lights, Wipers and Washers, Windscreen, Steering, Suspension and Electrics.

  • Does an MOT mean I don’t need to get my car serviced?

    No, an MOT doesn’t check the general condition of the engine, gearbox or clutch. To make sure your car is safe and roadworthy, we strongly recommend you get your vehicle serviced at the same time.

  • What happens if my car passes an MOT?

    You will receive an MOT certificate from us which will be recorded in the DVSA MOT database. Please note you may still get a list of ‘minor’ or ‘advisory’ notice that highlights problems to monitor or fix in the future.

  • What happens if my car fails an MOT?

    Your car will fail the MOT test if ‘dangerous’ or ‘major’ problems are found. If this happens you will get a Refusal of an MOT Test Certificate. You can choose to have the problems fixed by us and you will only then need a partial retest (the cost of which is deducted from the remedial work you’ve had done). You can take your car away and have it repaired somewhere else if you so chose but your current MOT certificate must still be valid.
