An MOT or Ministry of Transport test involves dozens of checks on your car, including the brakes, lights, fuel system, mirrors, exhaust system, seatbelts, and windscreen wipers. Cars over three years old must by law pass a yearly MOT test to show they are roadworthy.
An average MOT test takes between 45 and 60 minutes but could take longer if your car fails the test or requires additional work.
The most common reasons a car may fail its MOT include:
- Screen wash not being topped up.
- A registration plate problem.
- Stickers on the windscreen blocking the driver’s view.
- Lit-up warning light on the dashboard.
