If you have a vehicle that is three or more years old, you are legally required to put your car in for an annual MOT test at an approved MOT centre. The MOT test will determine whether your vehicle is roadworthy or not.
What is covered by an MOT test?
An MOT test covers all the components that make your vehicle work, from brakes and exhausts to steering and suspension.
What happens if my vehicle fails its MOT test
You’ll be given a failure document and advised on retest rules. This means your vehicle doesn’t meet legal requirements and must be repaired and retested to comply with MOT test standards. Your service advisor will give you quotes for the work that needs carried out.
