In our MOT centre we try to cater for your requirements we offer you the facility to MOT your vehicle at a time that suits you, you can drop your vehicle off from 6.00am and collect it up to 9.00pm or book your vehicle in and wait while the test is carried out.
The MOT test checks that your vehicle meets road safety and environmental standards.
You must get an MOT for your vehicle by either:
Some vehicles need to be tested at one year old – check the MOT fees table to see which.
Earliest date you can get an MOT
An MOT lasts for a year. The date it runs out is printed on your current MOT pass certificate.
You can be fined up to £1,000 for driving a vehicle without a valid MOT.
You can get an MOT up to a month (minus a day) before it runs out and keep the same renewal date.
If your MOT runs out on 15 May, the earliest you can get an MOT to keep the same renewal date for next year is 16 April.
You can get an MOT earlier, but the renewal date for the following year will change to one year (minus a day) from the date the vehicle last passed its MOT.
Your MOT is due to run out on 15 May, so the earliest you can get it done is 16 April. However, you take your vehicle for its MOT on 14 April and it passes. This means that the MOT expiry date changes to 13 April the following year.
