What is an MOT?
While MOT stands for Ministry of Transport, when people say that their car is due for an MOT, they actually mean an MOT test. This is a test that you’re legally required to have carried out on your car on an annual basis.
The purpose of the test is to ensure that your car is working properly and is unlikely to experience serious mechanical failures, while also making sure that it’s not too damaging to the environment.
How do I pass my MOT Wickford?
To pass your MOT test, you need to prove that your car is both safe to drive, and not too damaging to the environment.
But unless you’re a professional, you’re unlikely to be able to spot all of the potential problems that could cause your vehicle to fail its MOT.
That’s why it’s highly recommended that you take your car in to get serviced before you have your MOT test. This way, if there are any issues with your vehicle, you can catch them before the test and get them fixed.
Otherwise, you risk failing your MOT test, having to get those fixes made anyway, and then booking in for a retest, all of which will cost you in time and money.
Do all cars need to have an annual MOT?
While the majority of cars do need an annual MOT, there are two exceptions to this. The first is for cars that are less than three years old, and the second is for cars older than 40 years old. However, in both cases you are still required to ensure that your vehicle is kept in a good condition and is safe to be out on the road.
How much does an MOT cost?
This will depend on your specific vehicle. However, for a medium sized car, you’ll pay £54.85.
