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.

 

When is it Legal to Drive Without an MOT Certificate?

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.

 

Why Do MOT Tests Include an Exhaust Emissions Test?

The MOT test includes an exhaust emissions test to ensure that your vehicle’s engine is operating efficiently and producing minimal air pollution. It is part of an international effort to reduce the effects of harmful carbon emissions on the planet.

If your vehicle fails the exhaust emissions test or doesn’t have enough fuel to sit this test, the tester must record an automatic MOT failure.

 

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).
