Who needs an MOT and why?
If your vehicle is three years or older you are required by law to have an annual safety check (Ministry of transport test) commonly known as an MOT Test. The purpose of the MOT is to ensure you vehicle meets the minimum safety standards required by law.
It is your responsibility, as the registered keeper to ensure that your vehicle has and passes an MOT test every twelve months, this is required by law, otherwise you will be unable to legally drive your vehicle or renew your road tax.
The penalty for not having an up to date MOT certificate could mean a hefty fine. Any insurance claims would also be affected by the absence of an MOT, especially in the case of injury, because they could then argue your vehicle was not road worthy.
What happens if it fails?
If your vehicle fails its MOT test, you are under no obligation to have the repairs done at the vehicle test station. Here at Sandy Lane we are equipped with all the latest technology and equipment to carry out all aspects of repairs, in order to get your vehicle through its MOT, but the decision of where to have the work done still remains yours.
We offer help and advice on your MOT failures and a FREE of charge Re-test, provided the vehicle is returned within ten working days of the original test date.
