What is an MOT?
An MOT is a certification produced by a DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Authority) approved and qualifiedTechnician. The certificate shows that your vehicle is in a roadworthy condition at the time of test, It is a legal requirement for all vehicles over the age of 3 years to have a valid MOT certificate. This is to ensure that the vehicle meets the minimum environmental and safety standards set out through Government legislation. Without a valid MOT certificate you will be unable to renew your road tax and your insurance may be invalid
You can present your vehicle for an MOT up to 28 days before your current certificate expires, any additional days will be added onto your new certificate automatically. We even set up email or postal reminders for next year, usually sent around four weeks before your certificate expires.
