M.O.T. Preparation & Testing

Standard cars require an MOT (Ministry of Transport) test on the third anniversary of their date of first registration (this can be found on the V5 registration document), and then annualy after this.

A valid MOT certificate is a legal requirment, if you are caught without one in place you will be given a financial penalty and your insurance will be invalid, which commands a minimum of 6 penaty points on your driving license. You will also be unable to tax your car unless it has a valid MOT.

The purpose of an MOT test is make sure that the car being tested is roadworthy and safe to drive. An MOT will check tyres, brakes, lights, exhaust, emissions and fuel system, amongst other things.There are over 600 ways that a vehicle can fail. An MOT will not cover various parts of your car, including the clutch, gearbox and engine. Issues not covered can often be picked up by servicing your car regularly , which can prevent them developing into more serious and costly problems.

The government has capped the price of an MOT test at £54.85. Many garages will offer lower charges, even as little as £9.99. On first impressions this may seem like a bargain, but often these garages will recoup the costs by exadgerating problems and the costs to put them right. It is sensible to use a garage that you trust, even if the MOT test charge isn’t as cheap as other garages.

If your car fails your MOT, it’s importat not to panic. The pass rate is only 60% and a car can fail for something as minor as a bald tyre or a faulty bulb.
