About The MOT test
The MOT test was first introduced in 1960, and was originally a basic test including brakes, lights and steering check to be carried out when a vehicle was ten years old, and every year thereafter.
The list of items tested has been continually expanded over the years, and the MOT test is now a comprehensive yearly check of your vehicle and it’s safety on the road. Today’s MOT test includes the inspection of:
- Lighting and signalling equipment
- Steering (including suspension)
- Tyres and wheels
- Seat belts
- Body, structure and general items. Includes body and components such as spoilers, bumpers and mirror housings.
- Exhaust, fuel and emissions
- Driver’s view of the road
**The full MOT testing handbook is available online.
An MOT can be carried out up to one calendar month prior to the expiry date of your existing MOT certificate, whilst still preserving the anniversary of the expiry date. For example, if your current certificate expires on 20th June, you can take the test between 21st May and 20th June and the new certificate will be valid until 20th June the following year.
