Make an appointment for an MOT test in Shotgate.

In the UK, most cars older than three years are subject to an annual examination called an MOT test. The MOT test examines a variety of areas, including brakes, lights, steering, and suspension as well as the exhaust emissions, and it is designed to ensure that cars meet the minimum requirements for safety and the environment.

Who Is Able To Issue An MOT Certificate?

The MOT test must be performed by an accredited testing centre, and it normally takes an hour to finish. The certificate, called an MOT certificate, is awarded if the test is successful, and it is valid for a year starting on the test date. If the test results show that parts of the vehicle need to be mended or replaced, a list of those parts will be provided, the work carried out, and the vehicle will then need to be retested.

What Will Happen If My MOT Certificate Isn’t Current?

You risk receiving harsh fines if you get caught operating a vehicle on a public road without a current MOT certificate. Driving without a valid MOT may result in a fine of up to £1000, six points on your licence and the potential for car seizure. Because many insurance companies demand a valid MOT certificate in order to grant coverage, driving without a current MOT certificate may also have an impact on your vehicle insurance.

It’s important to keep in mind that even if your vehicle has a valid MOT certificate, you must always maintain its safety and reliability. This necessitates frequent inspections of things like tyre pressure, tread depth, and all lights and signals.
