Why you should check when your MOT is due
There are several reasons why everyone should check their MOT due date:
- It’s a legal requirement – every driver is required to get an MOT to ensure the safety of other road users, passengers, pedestrians, and road infrastructure. If your car is more than three years old, it is illegal to drive without one.
- You won’t be able to drive – If your car’s MOT has expired, you’ll only be able to drive it to an MOT testing station or workshop. Your trip will be illegal if you are stopped by the police and do not have an appointment letter to show them.
- You might be fined up to £1,000 if you are caught driving your car without an MOT. Automatic recognition systems allow police to examine vehicle number plates, so a quick drive in a car that has passed its MOT due date can quickly transform into a court summons.
- It will offer you more time to detect problems — Many people choose for a pre-MOT due date service or self-inspection of their vehicles. Knowing when your MOT is due allows you to complete all necessary checks and be confident that you will pass without receiving any MOT failure codes, potentially saving money.
A healthy MOT History can suggest a car has been well looked after by its previous owners. A car with a history of MOT test fails and lots of advisory notes could point to a higher risk of mechanical issues and financial outlay in the future.
