MOT

Are you looking for MOT Test in Wokingham for your vehicle?

Originally called the Ministry of Transport test, an MOT is an annual examination of a vehicle that is three years old or more. The MOT tests both the safety of your vehicle and the level of emissions in the exhaust. The Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) is responsible for 'licensing' both the MOT test station and the MOT tester.

It is your responsibility to ensure that your vehicle is tested every 12 months. Without a valid MOT certificate, you will be unable to renew your road tax and your insurance may be invalid. Having a current MOT certificate is also a legal requirement in the UK.

What is an MOT test?

The MOT confirms that at the time of the test and without dismantling it, the vehicle meets the minimum acceptable environmental and road safety standards required by law.

It doesn't mean that the vehicle is roadworthy for the length of time the certificate is valid. The MOT certificate is also no guarantee of the general mechanical condition of your vehicle.

The test doesn't cover the condition of the engine, clutch or gearbox.

Your MOT can be done up to one calendar month before it is due; this is to give you time to have any repairs done before the old certificate expires. Most vehicles need their first MOT when they are three years old, then annually.

Classification of vehicles under an MOT test

Class 1: Motorcycles up to 200cc

Class 2: All motorcycles except Class 1

Class 3: Cars up to eight passenger seats, motor caravans and quads

Class 4: Private passenger vehicles (minibuses) 13-16 seats

Class 5: Goods vehicles (vans) 3000-3500kg DGW

The MOT confirms that at the time of the test it has met the minimum acceptable environmental and road safety standards without dismantling the vehicle.

For the new driver or anyone who would like to know more about how their car works, please ask: we can show you how to check the tyre pressures, coolant level, oil level and more.
