An MOT is a comprehensive assessment of a vehicle's safety, exhaust emissions and roadworthiness. Your vehicle must pass the MOT test to be legally driven on the road, and the test must be carried out at an authorised test centre.
The law states that all cars that are more than three years old must pass an annual MOT test. Before then, there is no legal obligation to undergo testing.

Driving without an MOT is a serious offence. Driving with an expired MOT certificate essentially means your car is unroadworthy. Driving without an up to date MOT certificate is not taken lightly by the police and can result in a fine of up to £1000.
