The MOT test is an annual test of vehicle safety, roadworthiness and exhaust emissions which is required in Great Britian for most vehicles over 3 years old. When your vehicle is tested, the MOT looks at general wear-and-tear items, such as brake discs, brake pads & tyres to ensure they meet all of the legal minimum requirements. Please be aware that the MOT certificate is not a guarantee of the general mechanical condition of the vehicle.

Preparation for the MOT test

Generally, there are always a few things that you can check at your own home to ensure your car meets most of the standard requirements to pass an MOT.

Nearly half of all faults we find on MOTs could be avoided simply by carrying out a few checks. It's worthwhile checking items such as lights, horn, wiper blades and tyres beforehand so you know your vehicle has the best chance of passing first time.
