You must get an MOT for your vehicle by either: -                                                                      ​

  • The third anniversary of its registration

  • The anniversary of its last MOT, if it's over 3 years old

An MOT lasts for a year. The date it runs out is printed on the last pass certificate.                                   

You can get an MOT up to a month (minus a day) before it runs out and keep the same renewal date. You can get an MOT earlier but the MOT renewal date for the following year will be different.

California MOT, Oxford Road, Cleckheaton, United Kingdom

​OPENING TIMES:    Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm   -   Saturday 8am to 12pm

An MOT test is an annual test of vehicle safety, roadworthiness aspects and exhaust emissions required in Great Britain for most vehicles over three years old used on any road.

It is illegal to drive a non-exempt vehicle that requires a test on public roads without a current MOT, except when driving to or from (subject to insurance terms and conditions) a booked MOT Test or to have remedial work done to rectify failures in a previous test.

You can be fined up to £1,000 for driving a vehicle without a valid MOT.​​
