Accrington Garages MOT

What is an MOT?

The MOT test (Ministry of transport test) is a set of checks carried out to ensure your vehicle meets basic safety requirements to remain road worthy.

Once a vehicle is over 3 years old, it is a legal requirement that an MOT test is carried out once a year. It's very important to have a valid MOT certificate, as without one your car tax and insurance may become invalidated.

For more information about MOTs visit the official UK Government website

You can book your MOT up to 1 month before the expiration of your current certificate. The expiration date of your current MOT will still be preserved. For example, if your MOT is due on 30th April but your MOT is carried out on 1st April, then your next MOT will still be due on 30th April the following year.
