The Importance of Having the Right MOT

/ July 12, 2018/ Business Travel

The MOT is an important legal document your car needs to have in order to drive safely and legally.  The MOT test checks your car for particular areas of wear and tear as well as the emissions and other driving related things.

Any cars or vans which are at least 3 years old are required to have an up to date MOT every year to prove that they are in good working order.  Some of the things which are checked include brakes, tyres, lights, washers and general wear.  If a car is found to not have a valid MOT, the driver can be liable for an on the spot fine!  Many police vehicles have automatic numberplate recognition devices which can instantly spot if a car is up to date with its MOT.
