The majority of cars, light commercial vehicles and vans will need to have a valid MOT certificate issued at three years old. A valid certificate will have a date no later than the 3rd anniversary of the vehicle’s date of registration, and will last for one year. Following the initial certification, the vehicle will need to go through an annual retest so that the certificate is renewed for another year.
You can get your retest done early, within one month of the expiry date of your current certificate, and retain the same anniversary date. However, if you get the retest done any earlier, the next year’s date will be reset to the anniversary of the retest date, and you will effectively lose a month on your old certificate. Get the retest done any later than the expiry date of the old certificate, and you will be guilty of driving without a valid MOT certificate, risking a fine of up to £1,000 if you get caught. It’s not worth the risk, when there is a reminder service available free of charge via https://www.gov.uk/mot–reminder. Get your reminder via email or text, then book an appointment straight away with the most convenient AutoMend approved garage near Wooburn Green, and you’ve got it covered.
The first MOT is required after only one year for certain vehicles. These are typically vehicles that carry vulnerable people or paying passengers. Vehicles requiring an MOT after the first year include ambulances, taxis and minibuses when used for private hire.
Not all vehicles require an MOT test; there are a number of exemptions. Electric–powered goods vehicles and tractors for example are exempt. Also exempt are historic or classic vehicles with an initial registration date exceeding 40 years old. This may come as a surprise, as surely the older the vehicle the more the need for safety tests? The thinking is that modern MOT testing is not always applicable to these vehicles as their technology is so different from modern vehicles. Also, it is illegal to drive a vehicle on the roads unless it is safe and roadworthy, so they may not have an MOT certificate, but they still need to be maintained properly. If you own a classic vehicle, we have members within our network who specialise in these types of cars, and can help with repair and maintenance services.
