What is an MOT?
An MOT is a mandatory test that makes sure your car meets minimum standards for environmental impact, driver safety and roadworthiness. MOT tests ensure that cars on the road pass standards designed to protect people, infrastructure and the wider environment.
A valid MOT certificate is required three years after your car was first registered and then once every year afterwards, on or up to the anniversary of the previous MOT test. MOT tests have been a legal requirement since 1960.
Do I need to book an MOT test?
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's your responsibility to make sure it's tested annually.
As well as the obvious safety and performance issues, you cannot legally drive your car on the roads nor renew your road tax if you don’t have a valid MOT certificate. 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 proof of valid MOT. If you don’t have one, your insurance claim may be affected, especially if third
- party is injured as a result.
