The MOT (Ministry of Transport) test is a comprehensive inspection to ensure that your vehicle is safe and meets the minimum standards needed for driving on the UK's roads.
In the UK, it is a legal requirement for all cars (and small vans) that are over 3 years old to have a valid MOT certificate. The MOT certificate must be renewed every year.
Failure to have a valid MOT certificate when driving can result in a fine of up to £1,000, and your vehicle may be towed back to your house or a testing centre.
In our experience, a MOT test usually takes between 45 minutes and an hour.
The standard Class 4 MOT covers:
- Boot and Tailgate
- Exhaust Emissions
- Exhaust System
- Fuel System
- Registration Plate
- Seat belt & SRS
- Steering & Suspension
- Tyres & Wheels
- Vehicle Structure
- Wipers & Washer
