What is tested during an MOT check?

If your vehicle is over three years old, it will require a valid MOT certificate to be legally driven on the road. The checks carried out for the MOT are set and regulated by the DVSA and are standard across all test centres. Your vehicle must meet the required standards to pass the MOT, so it’s worth knowing what will be checked to avoid failing on something avoidable. Making sure fluids are topped up and all lights are working are some ways you can prepare before arriving at the MOT centre. The list below shows what is checked during your MOT test:

☑ Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
☑ Registration plate
☑ Lighting check
☑ Steering and suspension
☑ Wipers and washers
☑ Windscreen
☑ Horn
☑ Seats
☑ Seatbelt operation and safety
☑ Fuel system
☑ Exhaust and emissions
☑ Bodywork
☑ Bonnet catch
☑ Doors
☑ Mirrors
☑ Wheels and tyres
☑ Brake safety
