Warrington MOT Basics
To use a vehicle older than three years in the UK, you need a valid MOT certificate. These certificates are valid for one year. To obtain a new certificate or renew your existing certificate, your car must pass the MOT test.
The purpose of the test is to ensure that vehicles on the UK roads are roadworthy and meet minimum safety and emission guidelines. It is somewhat similar to tests that you would expect a garage to perform during a routine service, but it’s not a replacement for periodic service. It is more focused towards safety and pollution control.
It’s not legal to drive a vehicle older than three years without a valid certificate. So, it’s better not to wait until the last day for the MOT test. Do it with at least 10 days to spare, which gives you enough time to get any defects repaired. You can renew your certificate up to one month before expiry without losing its remaining validity.
Warrington MOT Tips
A few simple things will improve your chances of a smooth test.
- Ensure that your car has enough fuel and oil. Cars without a minimum level of fuel and engine oil will not be accepted for the test.
- Remove unnecessary items from your car and ensure that it’s clean and uncluttered. Your car may fail if it’s too dirty or cluttered.
- Top up the windscreen washer fluid.
- Check if your wipers are functional. They should be able to clean the screen when operated.
- The driver’s view should be unobstructed. Remove any stickers in the wiper’s sweep area.
- Your registration plates must comply with the rules and should be in good condition.
- Your tyres, including the spare, must be inflated to the right pressures as specified by the manufacturer.
- Ensure that all lights and indicators are working.
What Can You Expect At The Test?
The test takes about an hour. If any fault is detected, it must be fixed before you can retake the test. There is no compulsion to get your car repaired at the same garage where you take the test. That said, it saves a lot of time and effort if you can get your car repaired at the same garage and get it tested again on the same day. That’s where Lowton Motor Company makes a difference.
