An MOT is a legally required annual test on your vehicle to check that it is still meeting the DVSA’s minimum standards on the following:

  • Brakes
  • Fuel System
  • Lights (front, rear, and internal)
  • Seatbelts
  • Tyres
  • Driver’s view
  • Exhaust systems
  • Car suspension
  • Windscreen and wipers
  • General overview of body structure
  • Horn
  • Battery
  • And more.

On average, this will take a registered MOT centre around 45 minutes to an hour. Should the vehicle fail its MOT and there are fixable issues, your car will be kept in for longer to fix these after the test. It’s best to set aside a full day just in case. Often cars fail their MOT for small, easily fixable issues. Here we have outlined how to avoid this.

What do the MOT test categories mean?

Once the mechanic has finished your vehicle’s MOT test, any faults will be categorised into the following:

  • Minor faults: These are issues that will not change the vehicle’s performance, but maybe put under an advisory to get fixed soon.
  • Major faults: These faults will be the cause of your vehicle’s failing its MOT.
  • Dangerous faults: These will be serious faults that will impact your vehicle’s safety and performance.
