By law, your vehicle is required to take an annual MOT test if it's over three years old. During the test, your car will be tested against certain criteria set out by the DVSA. It is completed to ensure that your vehicle meets the minimum safety requirements to be driven on public roads. If you want your MOT test completed to the highest standards it's important to make sure that you get the test completed at a DVSA approved Test Centre.
WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR VEHICLE DURING AN MOT TEST
Our mechanics perform a series of safety inspections and tests on your vehicle following guidelines from DVSA. When the test is completed you will be given a certificate or refusal document, depending on whether your vehicle passed or failed the MOT. This document will have notes on what to do after the test has been completed. All of these tests are now computerised and you can view your vehicle's MOT history online at any time. We always recommend keeping hold of your MOT certificates for the service history of your vehicle.
