If your vehicle is 3 years or older it is law that your vehicle has its annual M.O.T (Ministry Of Transport) test.
The M.O.T. test ensures that your vehicle meets the minimum safety requirements for driving on public roads.
Without a valid M.O.T. certificate it is illegal to drive your vehicle on the road and you won't be able to purchase road tax.
It is your responsibility to ensure your vehicle is M.O.T. tested every 12 months,
If you don't renew your M.O.T. certificate annually the penalty could be a fine.
If your vehicle is involved in any form of accident you may be asked to produce your M.O.T. certificate, an absence of this certificate could result in a fine and could affect any insurance claims.
You can book an M.O.T. up to 28 days in advance of the date its due.
Your new M.O.T. is 12 months from the expiry of your old certificate.
Recent computerisation of the M.O.T. testing system means police can now check your registration against VOSA's database to see if your vehicle has a valid M.O.T.
To avoid falling foul of the law book you car in now for your next M O T
If a failure accurs on test you will have ten working days to return vehicle for no charge re-test
