A MOT (also known as The Ministry of Transport Test) is required by UK Law for any vehicle that’s 3 or more years old. It includes checks to ensure your vehicle meets the minimum safety standards and exhaust emission levels defined by the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency.
A MOT Test is conducted by a DVSA Accredited Technician who will assess your vehicle via a series of checks around interior and exterior of the vehicle. These checks will verify that your vehicle meets the legal requirements to be in use on the road.
The MOT assessment is based on the condition of the vehicle on the day of the test. If the vehicle passes the MOT the registered owner will be issued with a VT20 ‘pass’ certificate. If it fails then the registered owner will be issued with a VT30 ‘failure’ certificate. The Technician will also inform you of any advisory issues that may need attention in the near future.
Without a valid MOT Certificate you will not be able to renew your road tax – meaning you cannot legally drive your vehicle. Make sure you check the expiry date on your existing MOT Certificate to see if it is valid.
