The MOT test is a road safety measure to ensure that all vehicles more than three years old comply with the law and meet road safety and environmental standards.
The test confirms that at the time it was taken, the vehicle met the minimum standards.
- It doesn’t mean the vehicle is roadworthy for the length of time the MOT is valid.
- It doesn’t cover the condition of the engine – clutch and gearbox.
- It is not a substitute for regular maintenance or servicing.
