What is an MOT?
The MOT test was introduced back in 1960 by the Ministry of Transport to check that vehicles on our road meet safety standards, as set by the DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency). Today cars also have to meet emissions standards.
When do I have to take my vehicle for its MOT test?
Once your vehicle is 3 years old, it will need to go for its MOT test and then again every year. You are welcome to take the car to be tested a month prior to its current MOT certificate expiring.
