What should I do if my car fails its MOT?

You’ll be issued with a VT30 Certificate stating why the car failed. There is no time limit before a retest can be booked, and the garage will normally offer to carry out the required repairs. Therefore, you should undertake any necessary repairs pointed out by the garage to ensure a pass certificate.

How often should I get a MOT?

Your car should go in for its MOT annually, unless of course it was bought and registered as brand new. If this is the case it is only required after three years of its registration, but after that point it should be taken in yearly like other cars.

Booking a car MOT test in Carlisle

An MOT is a service/test which every car is legally required to have carried out every 12 months.

You don’t need to take your car for three years if you buy and register it as brand new. However, as soon as the three years are up, it is a legal requirement that you take your car for the test yearly.

A cars roadworthiness will be checked during the MOT, with each major component inspected by a trained professional. A garage has to have authorisation from the DVSA to carry out the test.
