The MOT Test

We are an approved MOT Test Centre in Manchester offering MOT preparation and MOT testing in Manchester at affordable prices.

When To Test

You must get an MOT test every year once your vehicle is 3 years old (or 1 year old in some cases). You can then renew your MOT up to a month before it expires. The earliest date you can get your vehicle tested is printed on the pass certificate.

Components To Be Inspected

An MOT certificate confirms that at the time of the test, without dismantling, the vehicle met the minimum acceptable environmental and road safety standards required by law. It does not mean that the vehicle is roadworthy for the life of the certificate. The test does not cover the condition of the engine, clutch or gearbox. You must keep any vehicles driven on the road in a roadworthy condition. The MOT test checks that your vehicle meets road safety and environmental standards.

It isn't the same as having your vehicle serviced and doesn't check its general mechanical condition.
