“I’m always on the go, so booking my MOT on my phone was really useful.
I compared garages, picked the best one for me and even saved money, all whilst waiting for my morning coffee!”

If your car is due an MOT test, you must book an appointment before the expiry date to continue driving on the roads around Wales. The test checks whether your car meets road safety and environmental standards, and you will be prosecuted if caught driving without a valid MOT certificate.
The only exception to this rule is if you are driving it to a garage for repairs after a failed test or to a pre-booked MOT.
Book your MOT well in advance to avoid the risk of missing your test date. You can book up to 12 months in advance through our online comparison site and save up to 70% on an MOT near you in the process by comparing deals.

An MOT test, or Ministry of Transport Test, is an essential annual vehicle check to assess roadworthiness and safety standards. It ensures all vehicles on UK roads are maintained to a certain standard, improving road safety standards in the process.
If your MOT is overdue you must book a test immediately. It is illegal to drive on public roads in the UK without a valid MOT certificate.
You can book an MOT online today by entering your vehicle registration and postcode into our comparison site.
An MOT can cost as much as £54.85, but many test centres set their prices lower to encourage more customers to choose them. While you can pay less than the £54.85 for a class 4 test, you will never pay more as it is a fixed upper limit as set by the UK Government.
Class 4 covers all cars and light commercial vehicles registered in the UK.
You can book your MOT as early as you want, but most people choose to book it up to a month, minus a day, before the expiry date. This allows you to complete the same expiry date for the following year. For example, if your car was registered on the 1st of September, you could book your MOT between 2nd August and 1st September to keep the same expiry date.
If you book your MOT early, you get more time to fix any faults and ensure your car is still legal to drive on UK roads. However, if you book your MOT earlier than a month in advance, the expiry date will become the date of your most recent test.
It is only legal to drive without a valid MOT certificate if you are on your way to a pre-booked MOT test or to have the failed defects fixed. If you are stopped by the police, you must be able to prove that you have a booked appointment and confirm it with the test centre or garage.
If you are caught on a public road without a valid MOT certificate, and you can’t meet the above criteria, you can be fined £1,000. There is a further £2,500 fine if your vehicle is found to be unroadworthy. You will also receive 3 points on your driving licence per fault.
Driving without an MOT certificate also invalidates your car insurance. This brings an unlimited fine, potential disqualification from driving and 6-8 points on your licence.
Wales is a compact, mountainous country, and its landscape and history are a draw for leisure drivers and tourists. Whether you’re in Snowdonia, the Gower peninsula, Cardiff or the Brecon Beacons, BookMyGarage will find you the best service provider at the best price.
The mountainous nature of the Welsh landscape means that large areas are only sparsely populated, with almost half the population living on or near the coast and in the southernmost counties. It is one of the wettest parts of the UK, with Snowdonia seeing average annual rainfall exceeding 3000 mm. As much of the land is over 150 metres above sea level, snow in the winter months could well affect driving conditions.
Wales’ terrain means that much of the road network is steep, narrow and winding. Road signs are presented in both Welsh and English. In terms of safety, the Welsh trunk road network is the highest risk of all trunk ‘A’ roads, with the A44 between Llangurin and Aberystwyth ranking as the region’s most dangerous. Wales’ motorways are the safest in the UK - but there’s only one, the M4, running along the south of the region. The worst road for congestion in Wales is the A48 Llandaff, Cardiff; regular drivers on this road can expect to spend 82 hours a year at a standstill.
