We have to remember that the renewal and passing the MOT every year is a necessary part of ensuring the riding public on the automobile safety, the state of roadworthiness of your vehicle as well as to certify that exhaust levels are well within acceptable standards.
Can you remember when your next MOT is due?
You’d be surprised at the number of people who fail to renew their MOT each year and face a possible fine of £1000.
According to the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) eight million vehicles missed their MOT renewal last year with a million of them being more than a month late. It can be a genuine slip of the mind but the authorities clamp down hard on MOT-evaders and the penalties for driving without a valid certificate can be severe.
Did you know that the government has recently launched a handy MOT and road tax date checker, just enter your vehicle registration to retrieve your MOT and road tax due date.
