MOT testing

MOT information

If your vehicle passes the MOT, you’ll get an MOT certificate from the test centre and it will be recorded in the MOT databaseIf your vehicle fails the MOT, you’ll get a ‘refusal of an MOT test certificate’ from the test centre. This is also recorded in the MOT database. You can appeal the result if you think it’s wrong.

You can take your vehicle away if your previous MOT certificate is still valid. If your MOT has expired, you can drive your vehicle to either:have the failed defects fixeda pre-arranged MOT test Appointment In both cases, your vehicle still needs to meet the minimum standards of roadworthiness at all times or you can be fined. You can be fined up to £2,500, be banned from driving and get 3 penalty points for driving a vehicle in a dangerous condition.
