Here are some of the most frequently asked MOT questions, answered by our experts!

What is an MOT? 

An MOT test is a point-by-point assessment designed to check whether or not your car or vehicle is safe enough to drive on public roads. Every testing garage uses the same components and structural parts of your car regardless of the make and model.

When is my MOT due?

Broadly speaking, new vehicles under 3 years old will not require an MOT based on the assumption that they’re in good condition. However, any vehicle will be due for an MOT by the third anniversary of its registration. If the vehicle is over 3 years, then the MOT is always due on the anniversary of the previous MOT.

Some vehicles may need an MOT at one year old. The MOT fees table gives this information and more.

How much will an MOT cost me?

The total cost of an MOT is regulated and there is a maximum amount that test stations can charge. While the cost varies depending on the type of vehicle, a car costs a maximum of £54.85 and for a standard motorcycle, it’s £29.65. The MOT fee is VAT free.

What will happen if my vehicle fails the MOT?

If your car or vehicle fails the MOT, by having a dangerous or major problem, you will not be allowed to drive your vehicle again until the problems have been fixed.

Can I drive a car after the MOT expires?

It is illegal to drive your vehicle on the road after the MOT has expired, and you can be prosecuted if you are caught. The only two exceptions to this law are when:

  1. You are driving to or from somewhere to be repaired.
  2. To a pre-arranged MOT test.

What is the difference between an MOT and a service? 

An MOT is designed to check whether or not your car or vehicle is safe enough to drive on public roads. In contrast, a service is designed to maintain the mechanical aspects of the vehicle and get it running at its very best. A service is not mandatory by law, but it is highly recommended to get regular services to keep the car in a good condition for safety purposes.

Can I check if a car has failed an MOT before?

Yes, you can, by simply using the DVSA’s MOT History checker to view details on your vehicle’s past MOT test results. You can find out whether it has passed or failed the MOT, where the test took place, and which parts failed at each test.

    Returned again as a customer, yet again nothing but exceptional service. I couldn't recommend another local garage, Pantech are far superior. You'll get honest care, with a family run business that puts the customer first.
    Thank you so much again for squeezing my repair in!
    Nothing but fantastic service!
    All staff friendly and helpful, they even managed to squeeze my MOT in the same day despite being busy.
    I'll be using this business moving forward, highly recommend! Thank you again everyone at Pantech.

    I can’t recommend this place enough. Their work is great, their workshop is clean and tidy and they have always been polite and efficient. Work carried out is always on time. They have done work on my motorcycle a few times now and I wouldn’t go anywhere else.
  • Avatar James Heaphy ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    Had an MOT carried out here. Friendly staff, clean and Covid safe waiting area and the work was carried out on time and efficiently. These are the funky recycled oil drums seats in reception. You can even order one for yourself if you want.

    After my car failed it's MOT at another garage (with a huge estimate for repairs) a friend suggested that I tried Pantech as they are honest and dependable. At very short notice Pantech carried out a minor repair and the car passed. Very impressed and I will use them again.

    Had my car serviced at Pantech and just cannot recommend them highly enough. They were extremely helpful and, not only got my car fixed in no time, but allowed my car to stay at their premises for a further 3 days whilst I was working away from the area. Polite, helpful, professional and reliable. Great value for money! Well done.
