What you need to know about the MOT Test?
All road vehicles must be maintained to a specific standard to be legally allowed to be driven on public roads.
If your vehicles over three years old, it’s required by law to pass an MOT test.
An MOT test is used to check that a vehicle meets all the necessary environmental & road safety standards. The first time you need to have an MOT test certificate for your vehicle is when it turns three years old. The only way to ensure your vehicle meets acceptable environmental and road safety standards is to have an MOT certificate issued.
An MOT certificate confirms this at the time of the test, without the need to dismantle the car.
