How much does an MOT cost?

The maximum amount car owners can be charged for their MOT is £54.85, while for motorcycles, the limit is £29.65. That’s because in the UK, the cost of MOTs is regulated by the government. 

The amount an MOT costs generally increases depending on the number of passengers transported by the vehicle. MOTs for buses with more than 16 seats that need every seatbelt checking can cost up to £124.50, for instance.

What is an MOT?

An MOT is a mandatory test that makes sure your car meets environmental, safety and roadworthiness standards. They ensure all cars on the road are passing standards designed to protect people, infrastructure and the wider environment.

An MOT is required three years after your car was first registered and then every year afterwards, on or up to the anniversary of the first MOT test. MOTs have been a legal requirement since 1960.

Do you need an MOT?

Every vehicle that’s three years old or over needs an MOT test certificate and you must renew this once a year. If you have a car, it is your responsibility to make sure it is re-examined annually.

In addition to the obvious safety and performance issues, if you don’t have a valid MOT certificate you cannot legally drive your car on the road and you won’t be able to renew your road tax. You also face the risk of being fined up to £1,000 for driving a car that doesn’t have a valid certificate.

If your car is involved in any kind of accident, you could be asked to show your MOT certificate. If you don’t have one, your insurance claim may be affected, especially if an injury is involved.

The DVSA has also computerised the MOT test system. This means mobile camera units and police patrols can check remotely to determine whether there is a valid MOT certificate associated with your car. All of this means it’s highly likely you need an MOT.

Understanding the EU tyre label

The Tyre Label is a mark for motor vehicle tyres. Manufacturers of tyres for cars, light and heavy trucks must specify fuel consumption, wet grip and noise classification of every tyre sold in EU markets starting in November 2012

Noise level rating

This is a measurement in decibels(dB) of the noise created between the tyre and the road. It is represented by 3 bars with a single bar being the lowest level of noise.

Fuel efficiency rating

Rolling resistance is used to measure how fuel efficient a tyre is. The less resistant a tyre is the less fuel it will use to move the vehicle.

A is for the highest performing tyres
E is the least performing

Wet grip rating

The basis for wet grip is the absolute stopping distance when driving 80 km per hour. Between each class, there are 3–6 metres difference in braking distance. Classes "D" and "G" are not used for passenger cars.

Snow tyre rating

The snow tyre icon shows, if a tyre is suitable for severe snow conditions. It bears a three-peak mountain snowflake symbol (3PMSF) that is incorporated in the sidewall of such tyres. The pictogram is granted by measuring the braking distance of a car from 25 mph on compacted snow or by measuring the traction force of a tyre. For a truck, the pictogram is granted by measuring the acceleration performance of a tyre. Snow grip performance in general is tested in accordance with Annex 7 to UNECE Regulation No 117. The regulation describes in detail such factors as test surface, air temperature, testing vehicle, load, pressure, speed, and many more.

Ice tyre rating

Features a symbol of an ice stalagmite and indicates that a tyre provides a shorter braking distance on ice covered roads in winter. Information on ice grip performance will be based on the ISO standard (ISO 19447), which is expected to be published in July 2021. For tyres meeting the technical requirements, the ice grip pictogram will be included on the new EU tyre label of a C1 tyre (passenger car tyre), which satisfies the minimum ice grip index values set out in that ISO standard. The pictogram is granted by measuring the braking distance of a car from 20mph on pure ice. The standards for C2 and C3 tyres are still to be defined.
