Local MOT Testing in London
The MOT test (Ministry of Transport, or simply MOT) is an annual test of vehicle safety, roadworthiness aspects and exhaust emissions required in the United Kingdom for most vehicles over three years old used on any way defined as a road in the Road Traffic Act 1988; it does not apply only to highways (or in Scotland a relevant road) but includes other places available for public use, which are not highways.
Why Should I Get An MOT?
An MOT is an annual test required by law for vehicles that are older than 3 years old. It tests the vehicle safety, roadworthiness and exhaust emissions of a vehicle. Not only is it a legal requirement but MOT Tests are a good way to check the general health of your vehicle.
When you receive an MOT Certificate (Fail or Pass), any faults will be broken down into Major, Minor and Advisory sections. These are good indications of the health of your vehicle. If you regularly service and maintain your vehicle then your vehicle should pass the test with flying colours.
If you’ve failed the test, then you have 7 days to get the faults repaired where a re-test will be free, however if you wait longer than 7 days then you will have to pay for the test again.
