What do I need to know about MOTs?
If you are an owner of a car that is three-year-old or older, you are obligated to pass an MOT check. This inspection can be carried out up to a month before the expiry a.k.a. your MOT’s anniversary date. After passing the test, you will receive an MOT certificate, that will be valid either for a year after the date of issue or for 12 months after the expiry date of your current certificate.
What does MOT testing includes?
Every MOT inspection should be completed by following standard procedures set by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) i.e. VOSA. The main purpose of the test is to check if your vehicle meets the main UK road safety standards. In our test centre, you can attend and follow the whole procedure. All of our testers are DVSA approved, so you can rely on professional and acknowledged services. However, it should be noted, that you are not allowed to distract or speak to the tester while inspecting the vehicle.
