MOT Certificate

An MOT certificate does not mean that the vehicle is roadworthy for the life of the certificate and is not a substitute for regular maintenance. If your vehicle is more than three years old you will have to get it tested every year to show that it meets the minimum road safety and environmental standards. There are different rules if you use the vehicle as a taxi. An MOT certificate confirms that at the time of the test your vehicle met, as far as can be reasonably determined without dismantling, the minimum acceptable environmental and road safety standards required by law. An MOT certificate does not mean that the vehicle is roadworthy for the life of the certificate and is not a substitute for regular maintenance. You can check if an MOT certificate is genuine or if a vehicle has failed an MOT test by doing an MOT check online. This will give you details about past tests.

You can check online if your MOT certificate is up to date online by clicking on the status link. This will also give you details about past tests. You will need your Registration number and the reference number on the V5C registration certificate to use the link on the left.

MOT Test

All cars that are three years old and older are required by UK law to have an MOT certificate. Without a valid MOT certificate you will be unable to renew your road tax and will also struggle to find insurance cover.
It is also a legal obligation to have an MOT carried out at least once a year.
MOT testing is thorough, and takes in all of the parts of your vehicle that need testing for it to be considered roadworthy.
