2. Why do I need one in the UK
Firstly it is the law, and secondly, it is to keep you safe. A car mot in the UK will allow you to drive your vehicle on public roads legally and has many benefits, one being to see if there are parts that are part of the test that are advised need changing. For example, you may be advised to replace your brakes as they are coming close to the legal limit, so this way, you can get the repair done before it causes you an issue.
3. When should I book an appointment for my car mot
Every 12 months is the legal requirement, but you can book an appointment for your car mot at any time. Also, you can book your car in up to one month before your cars mot runs out, minus a day, and your renewal date stays the same, so effectively you get a mot for 13 months.
4. How long does the MOT take?
This depends on the type of vehicle and how long it takes for a tester to complete their inspection. But on average, a mot test can take around 45mins to an hour.
