You can book your car in for its MOT by simply entering your vehicle registration and choosing a date from the online calendar.

An MOT test is a set of standard checks carried out to ensure your vehicle meets basic safety requirements to remain roadworthy.

An MOT is required for all vehicles over 3 years old.

Once a vehicle is over 3 years old, it is a legal requirement that an MOT test is carried out once a year. It is very important to have a valid MOT certificate, as without one your vehicle tax and insurance may become invalidated.

For more information – go to the official UK Government website via the following link: gov.uk/getting-an-mot/the-mot-test

Vehicles up to 3 years old

You can find out the exact date your MOT is due by checking your vehicle registration document (V5C document). The date the vehicle was first registered is the date the MOT is due, but 3 years later. For example, if your vehicle was first registered on 1st September 2013, the vehicle’s first MOT test will be due by 1st September 2016.

Vehicles over 3 years old

You can check the expiry date of your current MOT by checking your last MOT certificate (VT20 certificate).

The DVLA have an excellent online service to find out when your vehicle’s MOT is due. All you need to do is enter your registration number and the make of your vehicle on this website.

You can book your MOT up to 1 month before the expiration of your current certificate. The expiration date of your current MOT will still be preserved.

For example, if your MOT is due on 31st March but your MOT is carried out on 1st April, then your next MOT will still be due on 31st March the following year.

We won’t proceed with any work to resolve your vehicle failing its MOT without your permission.

In the unlikely event that your vehicle fails, you will be informed of the repairs and costs required to pass a re-test. You can then decide if you would like Autopfect to continue with the repairs on the same day where possible.

If you have booked your MOT in advance and it fails, you are still legally allowed to drive your vehicle until the MOT expires.

Autopfect offer a Free Re-Test for any vehicles that fail their MOT.
