MOT – Frequently Asked Questions

Can I drive my car if the MOT Certificate has expired?

You can drive your car without a valid certificate if you are driving either to/or from a pre-arranged MOT test, or to a garage to have work done on items that cause the vehicle to fail on the MOT test or from a garage that has carried out the repairs.

How long does the MOT test take?

A full MOT test takes around 40 minutes to an hour.

What if I lose my MOT certificate?

You can get a replacement from any MOT centre. You’ll need to give the test station the vehicle registration number and either the original MOT test number or V5C document reference number – this is on the V5C registration certificate.

When can i renew my MOT?

You can renew your MOT at any time but this will effect your annual renewal date if it is done before the anniversary date (one month before the current MOT expires). You can find out when the earliest date to MOT your vehicle by checking your current MOT certificate.
