MOT Testing in Basingstoke with K-Tech

Understanding the MOT Test and when to book it is essential for every car and van owner. An MOT is mandatory for vehicles over three years old and is designed to ensure your car meets safety and environmental standards at the point of testing. Certain classic vehicles over 40 years old and those without ‘substantial changes’ in the last 30 years are exempted from this rule.

When Should I Book My MOT Test?

Your MOT certificate remains valid for 12 months from the date of your last test. You can, however, schedule your next MOT Test up to a month (minus a day) before its expiry date. This gives you ample time to address any issues that might arise during the test so you can get your car back on the road. If your vehicle fails an mot some failure items require immediate repair before it can be driven again and others have a legal implications.

Driving without a valid MOT certificate is illegal, with two notable exceptions:

  • If you’re driving to a pre-scheduled MOT appointment.
  • If you’re driving to get repairs done following a failed MOT Test.

Violating this law can result in a fine of up to £1,000, impounding of your vehicle, and potential invalidation of your insurance.

You can easily check your vehicle’s MOT history on the GOV.UK website by entering your registration number. This will provide you with a detailed record of your past MOT Tests.
