When to get an MOT

An MOT test checks that your vehicle is roadworthy and meets road safety and environmental standards.

Any MOT must be carried out either on the:

  • the third anniversary of its registration
  • the anniversary of its last MOT, if the vehicle is over 3 years old

If you do not MOT your vehicle you could be fined up to £1,000 for driving a vehicle without an MOT.

The earliest date you can get an MOT

An MOT lasts for 12 months. You can found out the last date of your MOT by looking at the MOT pass certificate.

Changes to the MOT test

The MOT test changed on the 20th of May 2018. Please visit for more information.

It is possible and legal to get an MOT up to a month (minus a day) before it runs out, by doing this you can also keep the same renewal date e.g. if your MOT runs out on 15 November, the earliest you can get an MOT to keep the same renewal date for next year is 16 October.

If the MOT has run out

You cannot drive your vehicle on the road. You can be prosecuted if caught. There are however some exceptions where you can drive it, those are:

  • to or from somewhere to be repaired
  • to a pre-arranged MOT test

To avoid any unnecessary fines and to ensure your car is legally road worth contact us to book your MOT.
