What is Included in MOT checklist?

car having its MOT

An MOT is designed to ensure every car over 3 years old is roadworthy. Each component that is checked on your vehicle will either pass the test or recieve a ‘dangerous’, ‘major’ or ‘minor’ fault code. A dangerous or major fault will require immediate repair in order to be allowed a pass therefore to go back on the road for another year. MOT testers will point out minor issues and suggest advisories for the coming year that you should repair well before your next MOT test on the same vehicle.

A typical test will include checks on the following:

  • Brakes
  • Lights
  • Wipers and washers
  • Horn
  • Fuel system
  • Exhaust systems
  • Doors
  • Mirrors
  • Wheels and tyres
  • Registration plate
  • Steering and suspension
  • Windscreen
  • Seatbelts and seats
  • Exhaust emission
  • Vehicle structure
  • Vehicle identification number
