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. A comprehensive inspection/MOT test to meet the set criteria by the DVSA to ensure the vehicle is in a safe and roadworthy condition, will be conducted at the MOT test centre by a person accredited by DVSA (the MOT tester).

The assessment is based on the condition of the vehicle on the day the assessment takes place - passing an MOT does not guarantee the condition of the tyres for example 6 months later.

If your vehicle passes, the tester will provide you with a pass certificate. They will also list for you any 'minor' or '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. If these are easy fixes and can be addressed without your car leaving the garage, you will be provided with a free re-test to be taken within 10 working days.


The following components will be checked to ensure each meets the minimum standard set out by the DVSA before issuing a MOT certificate.

Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) - Must be present and legibly displayed on the vehicle. The VIN is a unique code including a serial number that is stamped on the vehicle.

Registration plate - The condition, security, legibility and the format of letters and numbers. The spacing and lettering must meet current regulations and should not be altered in any way.

Lights - The condition, operation, security and colour . The test will also check to see if the headlamp aim is correct.

Steering and suspension - The correct condition and that the operation is correct.

Wipers and washer bottle - They operate properly and give the driver a clear view of the road.

Windscreen - Any chips or cracks. The maximum damage size is 10mm in the drivers' line of vision or 40mm elsewhere in the remaining area swept by the wiper blades.

Horn - The operation for effectiveness and suitability.

Seatbelts - Including those in the rear of the vehicle are checked for type, condition, correct operation and security and that all compulsory seatbelts are in place.

Seats - The vehicle's front seats must be secure.

Fuel system - Any leaks and that the fuel cap fastens and seals securely.

Emissions - Ensure that the vehicle is within the specified guidelines and that the exhaust is complete, secure, without serious leaks and silences effectively.

Bodywork - Vehicle structure and body shell for excessive corrosion or damage in specific areas of the vehicle. Any sharp edge can result in an MOT failure.

Doors - They open and close correctly and the latch is secure in a closed position. Front doors should open from both the inside and outside of the vehicle. Rear doors may need to be opened to gain access to testable items like rear seatbelts.

Mirrors - The condition and security.

Wheels and tyres - The condition, security, tyre size, type and tread depth.

Brakes - The efficiency of the vehicle's braking performance, condition and operation. Most vehicles are tested on a roller brake tester.
