Why do I need an MOT test?
All UK registered vehicles over 3 years old are required by law, to have an annual inspection known as the MOT test. This is to ensure the vehicle meets the minimum government standards for roadworthiness, vehicle safety and emission levels.You can book up to 31 days before its due date.
It’s not the same as a Service!
It is easy to think that if your vehicle has passed an MOT test that it is reliable and safe to drive for another year, however the MOT test is very basic as the MOT inspector is not allowed to remove or strip any mechanical components during an examination. The test only gives a snap shot of the vehicles condition at that given time.
Regular servicing will help maintain an engines life by replacing oil & filtration and give you a greater insight to the vehicles condition i.e. brakes, steering, suspension.
