MOTs - the key rules
Rule 1 - It's your responsibility
It's the owner's responsibility to ensure their vehicle's certificate is valid, not for authorities to chase.
Rule 2 - Know when to go
You need a test when the car's three years old, then annually after that.
Rule 3 - Always book tests in advance if your certificates run out
If your certificate's run out, you can drive it to the test centre provided the test's been booked in advance.
Rule 4 - MOT test costs are limited
The maximum test costs are £54.85 for cars or motor caravans and £29.65 for motorbikes. For a full list, see the gov.uk website.
