What is an MOT?
An MOT (Ministry of Transport Test) is an annual test of vehicle safety, emissions and roadworthiness aspects. An MOT is mandatory for most vehicles over three years of age and is normally due annually, although if you have a public service vehicle this might be due every six months or even three months.
Although an MOT checks various aspects of your car, like brakes, suspension, lights, seat belts etc, it is not a comprehensive guarantee that your vehicle will last another twelve months. Instead an MOT indicates the vehicle at the time of inspection meets the bare minimum requirements of a vehicle on the road at the time.
When an MOT test is carried out on a vehicle it usually lasts around 45 minutes. Within this time the MOT tester will check over all of the criteria on the car and report either a pass or a fail.
If your vehicle passes an MOT this is because it has met basic standards and criteria although you may receive ‘advisories’ which mean there are certain things noted to ensure your car remains roadworthy. Advisories are usually smaller problems such as the brakes are starting to get low, or tyres are starting to get low on tread, but as they are at that specific time means they are just legal and within standards of inspection.
If your car or van does fail an MOT you will be presented with written improvements for the vehicle required before a valid MOT pass certificate will be issued.
A re-test is usually free of charge as long as the vehicle is re-tested within a certain period (usually up to ten days from the date of the test failure). When performing the re-test, only the problem which prevented the pass will be re-tested.
If your vehicle does fail its MOT then do not worry. At Auto GT we will know what the problem is and what fix is required. Our friendly and experienced team can advise you of the problem and provide a free no-obligation quotation for the repair.
Whether you need new tyres, new brake pads or something else, we are on hand to help our customers wherever necessary to ensure the repair is professionally carried out to ensure an MOT pass.
