What is an MOT?
MOT testing is a legal requirement on all vehicles in the UK over 3 years old. It is an annual inspection following a criteria set out by the DVSA to determine whether a vehicle is in roadworthy condition. The MOT test covers a range of safety checks including the following; brakes, tyres, seat belts, emissions, steering and suspension and many more. MOT’s do not check the mechanical condition of your vehicle although this is something that we can check for you as well as servicing your vehicle.
When is your MOT due?
Your cars first MOT is due when the car is 3 years old then it is required every 12 months, your MOT certificate will also tell you the exact date when the existing MOT runs out. You can have your vehicle MOT tested up to 28 days in advance and the extra days will be carried over meaning you won’t lose any days for having your vehicle tested early and your MOT can last up to 13 months. If you are unsure of how to check when your MOT is due, please give us a call on 01285 869 385 and we can check for you.
