When do I need an MOT test?
Every vehicle in the UK needs to be tested each year to ensure that it complies with at least the minimum road safety and environmental standards. If you have a vehicle that is more than three years old, it will need an MOT test.
Under the VOSA requirements a MOT test will check the following components before issuing a MOT certificate.
Components tested during your MOT test are usually: The MOT Test Check List
• Vehicle Identification Number
• Registration Plate
• Steering & Suspension
• Wipers and washer bottle
• Fuel System
• Wheels & Tyres
Your MOT Certificate Your MOT certificate confirms that at the time of the test your vehicle met, as far as can be reasonably determined without dismantling, the minimum acceptable environmental and road safety standards required by law. It does not mean that the vehicle is roadworthy for the life of the certificate and is not a substitute for regular maintenance.
