What is an MOT?
An MOT test is an annual inspection that is required by law on all vehicles in the UK that are older than 3 years (and some vehicles that are older than 1 year). The test follows strict criteria set by the DVSA to determine whether your car is safely roadworthy. A broad range of vehicle safety checks must be completed by an MOT test centre with DVSA-approved examiners, including lights, tyres, seatbelts and emissions.
During the MOT test, the nominated tester, a person accredited by the DVSA to assess your vehicle, will conduct a comprehensive inspection to ensure the vehicle is in roadworthy condition. However, it is not the same as having your vehicle serviced and the MOT test does not check the general mechanical condition of the vehicle. Also, the assessment is based on the condition of the vehicle on the day - passing an MOT does not guarantee the condition of the tyres 6 months later, for example.
If the vehicle passes, the nominated tester will provide you with a pass certificate. They will also separately list and inform you of any 'minor' (formerly 'advisory') items that will require attention in the near future so you can keep an eye on them.
If the vehicle fails, you will receive a list of the 'major' or 'dangerous' faults present. If these are easy fixes and can be addressed without your car leaving the garage, you may be entitled to a free re-test.
