4Elms Stand Alone MOT or an MOT with a Service
All vehicles 3 years old or more are required to have a valid MOT test certificate which should be renewed annually. It is your responsibility to ensure your vehicle is examined every 12 months.
You can find the expiry date of your MOT on your existing MOT test certificate and you can have your vehicle MOT tested up to 28 days in advance. The expiry date on your new MOT is 12 months from the expiry of your old one rather than 12 months from the day you took the test, so as long as your MOT test is due in the next 28 days, you won’t lose any days for having your vehicle tested early.
Without a current MOT certificate, you will be unable to drive your vehicle lawfully or renew your road tax. The penalty for not having an up to date MOT certificate could be a fine.
Recent computerisation of the MOT testing system by DVSA means police and mobile camera units can now check remotely to see if your vehicle has a current MOT.
What do I need to bring with me for my MOT?
The only thing you need to bring with you is the vehicle being tested! Our nominated tester will be able to look your vehicle up on the DVSA system to find the existing MOT details and will date the new MOT certificate 12 months from the current due date.
Have your MOT carried out by 4Elms and we will remind you when your next test is due taking that worry away from you.
