Remember your car’s MOT


In the UK it is mandatory to have an MOT inspection every year from when the car reaches 3 years old.

Depending on the age or condition of your car you may want to give the car a thorough check-up at a good garage, before your car undergoes its MOT test. If there are any problems, you should have the repairs carried out before testing to avoid further re-testing.

It is your responsibility, to get your car MOT tested. If the date of the MOT is exceeded, you may only drive the car if it is driving to a certified MOT center. If you drive without a valid MOT certificate your accident insurance is invalid and you could also face prosecution and a large fine.

What is checked at an MOT test

At an MOT, the car’s overall condition will be checked, with a focus on safety and the environment. It includes checks such as:

  • Safety belts
  • Brakes
  • Steering
  • Lights and lamps
  • Glazing
  • Rust and corrosion in critical locations, including supporting parts such as side members and suspension.
  • Emissions and pollution
  • Other electrical functions
  • You must keep any vehicle driven on the road in a roadworthy condition. The MOT test checks that your vehicle meets road safety and environmental standards.

It isn’t the same as having your vehicle serviced and doesn’t check its general mechanical condition. This is often why many car owners have a general service on their car at the same as the MOT.

If you want a complete overview of the car’s condition, you can read more about MOT testing on

MOT approved garages

Nowadays garages offer a pre-MOT, in order to give you an idea if any work needs to be carried out before the actual MOT test. This is a popular option as it does not invalidate your current MOT (if it hasn't already expired).

You can find out which of our garages offer a pre-check and MOT inspection here.
If your car needs to go in for a re-test, you now have a big advantage as your MOT test report can be used to obtain a precise quote from an affiliated garage.

Replacing a lost or damaged MOT certificate

You can get a duplicate MOT certificate from any MOT testing station if you’ve lost or damaged the original.

You’ll need to give the vehicle registration number and either the original MOT test number, or V5C document reference number – this is on the V5C registration certificate.

If the car fails the MOT test the first time, you, or the garage can download the inspection report on

That way you can base your repair quotes on the MOT test report. It provides a good description for the garage and very accurate prices.

An MOT test checks the safety and environmental aspects of your BMW, Nissan, Kia or other make of vehicle, to ensure they meet the minimum legal standards. All cars, including Ford, Vauxhall, Volkswagen, Peugeot and Renault, must have an MOT test each year once the vehicle is over three years old. If an MOT test finds your car does not meet the required safety and environmental standards, you will need to make repairs and have your vehicle retested. When an MOT has been successfully passed, you’ll receive a certificate that enables you to legally drive on UK roads for 12 months.
