When is my MOT test due?

What is an MOT?

An MOT is an essential yearly check on any vehicle 3 years or older, required by law, to ensure your vehicle is safe to drive and properly maintained. It’s important to have it done so you are not a danger to other road users, and even pedestrians. It is essential you get your vehicle tested every 12 months.

The DVSA sets out strict rules to determine whether your car is roadworthy from lights, to tyres, seatbelts and emissions. You can see a full list of what is included in our MOT’s at Specialist Vehicles above.

All of our MOT testers are DVSA approved, so you can be assured of the quality workmanship involved. Please be mindful, an MOT isn’t the same as a service, as an MOT doesn’t check the general mechanical health of your vehicle. If you’d like to book a service alongside your MOT, you can do so here.

If your vehicle passes, you will receive a pass certificate and any advisories on the vehicle that you need to pay attention to for the near future, such as tyres.

If your vehicle fails, you’ll be presented with the “major” or “dangerous” faults such as suspension. These can get fixed on site by our team of skilled technicians.
