What is an MOT Test?


The MOT test is a yearly test that all cars over three years old must undergo to ensure they are safe and roadworthy. MOT Tests are a legal requirement in the UK and are designed to check that your vehicle meets the minimum safety and environmental standards the government sets.


The MOT test covers a range of essential safety checks, including:

  • Lighting and signalling
  • Steering and suspension
  • Brakes
  • Tyres and wheels
  • Seat belts
  • Exhaust and emissions


Preparing Your Car for its MOT Test


You can do several things to prepare your car for its MOT test and increase the chances of it passing on the first attempt. Here are some tips:


  1. Check your lights and signals: Ensure all your lights and signals are working correctly, including your brake lights, headlights, taillights, and indicators.
  2. Check your tyres: Your tyres must meet specific minimum requirements, including having a tread depth of at least 1.6mm across the central three-quarters of the tyre and being free from any cuts or bulges.
  3. Check your brakes: Your brakes will be tested as part of the MOT test, so make sure they are working effectively and don’t feel spongy or unresponsive.
  4. Check your wipers and washers: Your windscreen wipers must be in good condition and capable of clearing your windscreen effectively. You must make sure your washer fluid must be topped up.
  5. Check your exhaust: Your exhaust will be checked for leaks and excessive emissions, so ensure there are no visible signs of damage or rust.
