Carrying out MOT Test at The Tyre Group

When is my MOT test due?

Once your vehicle reaches three years of age, it is a legal requirement that it must undergo an MOT test annually. The MOT test will ensure that your vehicle is roadworthy and meets all DVSA standards. Some vehicles, such as taxis and ambulances, must be taken to an MOT test centre after 1 year.

It is important to bear in mind that an MOT test will not look at the mechanical condition of your vehicle and you should have your car serviced regularly. If you aren't sure when your vehicle is due for an MOT test, you can check the status.

Expired MOT

If your vehicle does not have a valid MOT certificate, it is not legally allowed to be on the road. The only exception is if it is being driven to a booked MOT test. If you are found to be driving a vehicle that does not have a valid MOT certificate, you could be fined £1,000 and in some cases, your car insurance may be deemed invalid. In addition, you cannot tax your vehicle without a valid MOT.

If your car has been to an MOT test centre and has failed and is deemed 'dangerous', continuing to drive your vehicle could then result in a fine of up to £2,500 and 3 points on your licence.

How long does MOT testing take?

MOT testing takes 45 minutes to 1 hour to complete. The Tyre Group has many test centres, so you can pick a location and time convenient to you.
