When my car will be eligible for MOT test?


New member
The MOT test for your vehicle is preformed by a professional when it is three years old and the purpose of this MOT test is to ensure the vehicle complies with road safety. There are different rules if you use it as a taxi. When your vehicle is tested, the MOT looks at some important items to see if it meets the legal requirements. You should be aware that the MOT certificate is not a guarantee of the general mechanical condition of a vehicle.

If a vehicle is registered with no prior use on the road, the MOT will be required three years after the date of registration. For example, a vehicle registered ‘from new’ on 1 April 2007 will require its MOT no later than 1 April 2010.

If a vehicle is used prior to registration, as would be the case with an import, the MOT will be required three years from the end of the year of manufacture. For example a vehicle manufactured at any time in 2007 will require an MOT no later than 31 December 2010. There is no grace period given after these dates.
