UK law requires your vehicle to have a valid MOT certificate if your car is over three years old – and you need to have an MOT every single year.
The MOT is a series of tests that help ensure your car is roadworthy. The Marine Garage MOT inspection will cover things like your tyres, and brakes, the suspension, the general state of the bodywork, your lights, wipers, windows, seatbelts, and exhaust.
If your car passes the test and is safe to be on the road, Marine Garage will issue you with a new MOT certificate which will be valid for the next 12 months (or 12 months from the previous expiry date if that is due in the next month).
Should your vehicle fail it’s MOT our technicians will give you a complete explanation of what work needs to be carried out to get your car to pass, and will offer to carry this work out for you should you require our help.
You cannot tax your car without a valid MOT certificate, and you could face prosecution if you are driving an unroadworthy vehicle.
If you are planning on selling your car in the near future it can help to have a new MOT certificate to demonstrate to any potential buyers that the car is safe for another 12 months.
