What is an MOT Test?

Your first MOT test is required when the car is three years old and then annually thereafter.

The MOT test ensures that at the time of the MOT test the car meets certain legal requirements regarding road safety and the environment. 

Areas that are checked during an MOT Test:

  • Car bodywork
  • Fuel system
  • Exhaust emissions and system
  • Seat and safety belts
  • Doors
  • Brakes
  • Tyres and Wheels
  • Registration plates
  • Lights and mirrors
