A  Few Checks To Make Before Your MOT

In the UK all vehicles over three years old must legally have a current MOT certificate and the test must be done every year. If your car fails, new VOSA re-test procedures mean that you no longer have to pay full fees for a re-test.

The MOT looks at several features of your vehicle ranging from cleanliness to emissions levels. A standard test usually takes around an hour although it can take longer in some cases. If your vehicle fails the rest you will get a list of those defects you need to fix before you retake it.

There are three categories of fault in the MOT: Minor, Major or Dangerous. If your vehicle has a dangerous fault you cannot drive it away; if you want to remove the vehicle you will need to get it towed. Other types of faults mean you can still use the car if it is roadworthy and you still have time on the current MOT. If your previous MOT has already expired you are only permitted to drive the car to a garage for repairs or a scheduled MOT re-test.

Always leave plenty of time for your MOT; you may need to have repairs. Leaving it until the last minute could leave you with your car off the road sitting in the garage awaiting repairs. You can take the test a month early and still retain the validity of your current MOT.

Before you take the MOT it is useful to do some basic checks to give your vehicle the best chance of passing. These checks include:

  • Fluid levels – check everything including the windscreen washer.
  • Check your windscreen – remove any stickers that may be obstructing the driver’s view. This means anything that is inside the area of the windscreen wiper’s sweep. If you can see any cracks or damage get these fixed.
  • Make sure all your mirrors work and are in good condition.
  • Tyres – all tyres must be kept in good condition, showing no signs of excessive wear or damage. Ensure they are at the correct pressure and remember to check the spare.
  • Seats and seatbelts – if seats are adjustable they must work properly and all seatbelts should be fully operational and in good condition. If there are broken belts or latches get them changed. A seatbelt latch should click easily and the seatbelts should lock when pulled.
  • Horn, lights and indicators – these must all work properly so replace any that are not functioning.
  • Wiper blades – the wipers should work normally without too much noise and fully clean the windscreen. Cracked, damaged or misaligned wiper blades can be noisy and will leave streaks on the windscreen. If you have any of these issues they will need to be replaced
  • The engine – run the engine and make sure that it does not produce excessive amounts of smoke. Check for any abnormal noises. If you find anything get it fixed before taking the test.
  • The brakes – Brakes should work well without making a noise and the handbrake should be in good working order.

Our Customer Reviews

  • I didn’t manage to find reception too easily, but I did manage to get a car with a good history at a good price. Came with a fresh MOT, service and valet. No issues with the car so far, but if I end up stranded on the motorway next week, I’ll update 😉

    Just bought myself a Jaguar F Pace from these guys and it was so easy. They'd only had the car one day, I sent a couple of emails asking for details and the company director contacted myself personally, sort out some photos and now it's mine. Very easy people to deal with, helpful and willing to sort anything out. Will use again

    Excellent company, professional non pushy salesmen, very knowledgeable on all the cars available, upfront and honest on the deals and purchase price for my car, aftersales also excellent.
    Would recommend the birchwood sales centre we will definitely be using them again, fantastic that they also have a service centre and mot centre on site to continue the high standard of care for the car purchased.

    I was very satisfied with the level of service I received last week from Lowton Motor Company. They traced a leak in my air conditioning unit, obtained a replacement radiator and topped up the gas within there estimated time scale and price
