What is an MOT ?

on all vehicles in the UK that are older than 3 years.

The test follows strict criteria set by the DVSA to determine whether your car is safely roadworthy.  A broad range of vehicle safety checks must be completed by an MOT test centre with DVSA-approved examiners, including lights, tyres, seatbelts and emissions.

For a full list of what is included in an MOT, check out the MOT Checklist.

When is my MOT test due?

You must get an MOT for your vehicle by either:

  • the third anniversary of its new registration

  • the anniversary of its last MOT, if it’s over 3 years old

After its first MOT, it will then require one every year on the anniversary of its last MOT.
