Drive safely

If your vehicle is three years old or more, then you legally have to get an MOT to continue to be able to use it on the road, to ensure that your vehicle meets the minimum requirements to be considered safe to use, both environmentally and mechanically.

Passing an MOT

When a vehicle passes an MOT, you will be given a certificate of authentication that you will need to keep in a safe place. This certificate is valid for one year, after which time a new test will need to be taken and passed, and a new certificate will be provided.

What Happens When You Fail an MOT

If your vehicle fails its MOT, you will need to get it re-tested. Sometimes you will have to pay a partial charge for the new test and other times there is no need to pay for a new test. Let’s run through the circumstances when an MOT re-test is free: If the vehicle remains at the testing station for repairs and the re-test takes place within 10 working days If the vehicle fails and requires a partial re-test for a selection of specific items Failing an MOT isn’t always hugely expensive, nor does it have to mean that your vehicle will be off the road for a long time and it often requires you to simply organise a few minor repairs before getting it re-tested. However, some cars that fail their MOT will need to have extensive repair work carried out, which is why many choose to get their vehicle looked over before taking the test to get any necessary repairs done first.

Lost MOT Certificate

If you lose your MOT certificate, ATS Euromaster will be able to print out another copy of the certificate for you. If you are unsure whether or not your car has a valid MOT, then you can check the status here: https://vehicleenquiry.service.gov.uk/

Driving Without An MOT

Not only is it illegal to drive a vehicle without an MOT but it is also dangerous, as the vehicle may not be road worthy. If you fail to get an MOT every year, you will face a fixed penalty up to £1,000 should you get caught using your vehicle on the road after the certificate has expired. According to a study conducted by the Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders, figures show just how many drivers continue to ignore the warnings about driving without an MOT: Nearly 70% of drivers questioned have driven their vehicle for up to one week after the MOT had run out A further 24% continued driving for one month Another 7% admitted to driving for over six months after their MOT expired. In the majority of cases, this will make your insurance invalid, so if you are involved in an accident and you don’t have a valid MOT; your insurer will declare your policy void. The bottom line is if your MOT has expired, driving your vehicle is illegal, it can incur a fine and poses a significant financial risk.
