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.​​

Why Choose Us

Are MOTs cancelled?

For most people, the answer is no. The DVSA has said that, for the moment, MOTs for cars, motorcycles and light vans are continuing as normal.  
That means that if your car/bike/van is due its MOT in the coming days you should still arrange to have the test carried out. Failing to do so could invalidate your insurance and leave you at risk of being fined. However, the DVSA has suspended testing of all heavy goods vehicles (HGV), trailers and public service vehicles (PSV) for up to three months and said it is keeping testing of other vehicles under review.

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. 

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