When does my car need an MoT?

If your car that is more than 3 years old it is a legal requirement that it has a MoT test every year to ensure that it meets at least the minimum road safety and environmental standards.
 
A MoT is a thorough annual examination of a vehicle that is over three years old. The MoT examination tests both the safety of your vehicle and the level of exhaust emissions.
 
It is your responsibility to ensure that your vehicle is examined every 12 months. Without an MoT certificate, you will be unable to renew your road tax and your car may not be insured. Having a current MoT certificate is a legal requirement in the UK.
