How likely is your vehicle to pass its MOT?
Once your vehicle is three years old, it must undergo an MOT test on an annual basis by a Department for Transportation-approved garage. This is to determine whether your vehicle meets road safety and environmental standards.
If your vehicle passes its MOT, it will be awarded a VT20 safety certificate. If it fails, the driver is permitted one journey to move the vehicle to a garage where the relevant repairs can be carried out.
We have listed the key checks that a garage undertakes in order to determine whether or not your car is roadworthy.
Some simple checks can be made before you take your vehicle to a garage increasing your chances of passing on first inspection. For example, testing all of your lights and windscreen wipers.
