What is an MOT?
An MOT test is a test of your vehicle's safety, which every car is legally required to have every 12 months. It ensures that your car is functional, safe and, of course, legal to drive. It's your responsibility to know when your MOT is due and to book one before your current MOT certificate runs out. On average an MOT test takes 45-60 minutes. If your car fails the test and you need your car repaired this service will take longer.
