Compare Grays MOT Centres & Book an Appointment At the Best One Before Your Expiry Date to Ensure Your Vehicle is Road Legal

If your car is due an MOT test, you must book an appointment before the expiry date to continue driving on the roads around Grays. 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.

Enter your vehicle reg and postcode to compare instant prices and book an MOT in Grays in 3 steps today.

FAQs

What is an MOT Test?

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.

 

What Do I Do if My MOT is Overdue?

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.

 

How Early Can You Do an MOT?

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.

 

How Long is MOT Valid?

An MOT is valid for 12 months. This is calculated from the date of your test to the exact same date the following year. 

If you book your MOT early, it becomes valid for up to 13 months (the 12 months from your expiry date this year to the following year, plus up to an additional 30 days. This depends on how early you booked your MOT).

If you complete the repairs yourself and choose to take your car into a different test centre, you will need to pay for the full test again.
