MOT tests can be carried out on your car up to one month prior to the expiry date of an existing UK MOT certificate. You must ensure that a current MOT certificate is presented to the examiner at the time of the test.

On passing the MOT test, the vehicle will receive a certificate valid from the date of expiry of your existing MOT certificate.

All UK cars 3 years old and over require a valid MOT certificate by law. The contents and standards required are set by the Vehicle Inspectorate.

Why have an MOT?

By law, a car must under go annual testing to ensure it meets minimum road safety standards if it is 3 years old and over.

The test is carried out by a Vehicle Inspectorate approved tester, and will be shadowed by an assistant for verification. Due to MOT procedures, items may appear under more than one heading.
