What is tested as part of my MOT test ?

The ministry of transport approved MOT test consists of many items of the vehicle that must comply with the current regulations at the time the MOT test is carried out, as these change over time it is better that we provide a link to the official government web page dedicated to the MOT test.

Car due it’s annual MOT in Darlington?

If your car is due its annual MOT test within the next 30 days, Click here to read all about that rule.

Then why not give us a call 01325 352625 & get yourself booked into one of our available MOT testing slots, one of the tips we give our customers is to make sure your vehicle isn’t going to come into us and be guaranteed to fail the MOT test!!

What do we mean?

Well if you present your vehicle for MOT test & it has a bulb out or the washer fluid is squirting passing pedestrians rather than your windscreen or your tyres are below the legal limit, then unfortunately we will have no option to fail your vehicle.

A lot of the items that form the annual MOT test can’t be checked by the vehicle owner & rectified prior to the vehicle entering our workshop but the items above are easily checked & can be fixed or changed prior to the test being carried out, Resulting in not needing a retest or having to bring the vehicle back to us on another day.

Did you know you can get your vehicle MOT carried out 30 days in advance?

A vehicle can be presented for MOT test up-to thirty days in advance of its current MOT certificate expiry date.

If the vehicle is tested within the calendar month prior to when the MOT is due, the test certificate will run from the date of the test to one year after the expiry date of the current certificate. For example, if the current certificate was due to expire on 1st November 2012, and the vehicle was presented on or after 2nd October 2012, the certificate would run from the test date until 1st November 2013.

The same rule would also apply when the vehicle is presented for test within a calendar month of its first MOT. In this case, the vehicle owner would need to present their registration document.

If the vehicle is tested earlier than one month before its due date, the MOT will only run for twelve months.
