With the clocks going back in October the days are much darker often with adverse weather. The UK has had increasingly colder winters with more flooding & snow than recent years. Adverse weather can take it’s toll on your vehicle and may cause damage.

Ensuring your MOT is up to date can prevent a road accident. Putting off your MOT test could seriously impact yourself, your passengers and other road users. It’s always better to catch issues early on and have them fixed. 

MOT Testing

An MOT test is carried out by a  professional and should be done so yearly. This is required by law. The professional will need to check several things including:

  • Tyres 
  • Windscreen wipers and washers
  • Indicators
  • Brake lights
  • Exhaust system
  • The general condition of the body structure and chassis.

These are vital checks of the overall vehicle safety, roadworthiness and exhaust emissions of your vehicle. If any of these fail to meet the standards your vehicle will fail the MOT. To obtain an MOT certificate you will need to ensure any necessary works are carried out.
