What is an MOT?
A ministry of transport test, or as it’s more commonly known, an MOT test, is where a vehicle is put through its paces to test for any issues the car may have and identify any safety hazards which will be reported on and issues back to the driver to sort out the relevant fixes the car needs.
An MOT test is required by law for all vehicles to meet their safety standards, failure to do so can result in serious financial risks such as fines as well as invalid car insurance and the fact that you would be driving your car on the road illegally.
It’s much easier to simply book in for an MOT test before it’s due and alleviate any of these worries or events from happening.
