It’s important to know when It’s time for an MOT. Whether you own a car, van, motorbike, or lorry, every vehicle on UK roads needs to go through a set of tests in order to ensure maintained road safety and emissions standards.

To help you keep up with MOT scheduling, and what it entails, we’ve put together this brief guide.

What Is An MOT?

An MOT is an annual, mandatory vehicle service. It checks a variety of safety and emissions components to regulate safe roads and environmental impact. As this is a mandatory check, it’s crucial you get it carried out at the right time every year to avoid any fines. It may seem unnecessary if you’re vehicle is in good working order, but there are many subtle signs you can miss on a car that may be affecting its safety or emissions level.

The Difference Between An MOT & A Service

It’s easy to confuse an MOT and a regular service. Both entail a technician looking over your vehicle, and checking for repairs and issues in order to keep the vehicle in good working order. However, they each have specific priorities. As a result, one will maintain certain components and functions differently to the other. Please see below for a list of what each process covers:
