The MOT test checks whether your vehicle meets the minimum legal requirements for the items required to be tested under section 45 of the Road Traffic Act 1988. It does not tell you how long your vehicle will continue to meet these minimum requirements. Therefore, you may still be prosecuted for driving an unroadworthy vehicle before the end of the current test certificate. You should continue to maintain your vehicle to ensure that it will always pass an MOT.
The advisory notice that you may receive with the pass or fail sheet are either testable items that may soon need attention or items that are not part of the test which also may need attention or any peculiarity of the vehicle. You may need expert advice, even though that a MOT test certificate has been issued you may still be liable for prosecution or invalidate your insurance.
Chek out this information and it will help your car through the MOT on a few of all of the technicalities that can result in a fail rather than a pass. Our aim is to keep you safe and on the road for longer at an affordable price for many years to come.
