We’ll get you through your MOT test.
The MOT test is regulated by the DVLA and by UK law; all vehicles registered in the UK must have an MOT test once a year when the vehicle is three years old. When your vehicle is tested the MOT tester looks at the vital components of your car to make sure the vehicle meets the minimum UK legal requirements for use on the road in terms of road safety and environmental standards. You should be aware that the MOT certificate is not a guarantee of the general mechanical condition of a vehicle.
If your vehicle is registered with no prior use on the road, its first test is required exactly three years after the date your vehicle was registered. To preserve the date of expiry on your current MOT certificate you may present your vehicle for its test up to one month before your certificate’s expiry date.
If your vehicle fails its test, it is automatically listed on the VOSA database as being unfit for road use until all points on the MOT failure sheet are rectified. By law, if a vehicle has failed its MOT test is should not be used on UK roads – except to be taken to and from an MOT testing station.
Here at SRSC we work in partnership with our neighbouring MOT testing centre (based opposite our SRSC) to ensure that, if any work is required on your vehicle, it is undertaken as soon as the MOT has been completed.
