What’s involved when your vehicle has an MOT?
The MOT confirms that at the time of the test and without dismantling it, the vehicle meets the minimum acceptable environmental and road safety standards required by law.
It does not mean that the vehicle is roadworthy for the length of time the certificate is valid. The MOT certificate is also no guarantee of the general mechanical condition of your vehicle. The MOT test does not cover the condition of the engine, clutch or gearbox
