MOT is a mandatory inspection to assess every vehicle’s roadworthiness once a year. Every vehicle completing the third year of registration must get this annual test every year. According to the DVSA guidelines, you cannot ply on the roads without a valid MOT certificate, except for driving to an MOT centre with an appointment.

What are the vehicle components we check?
While conducting MOT checks, our experts inspect a list of vehicle components to assess their functionality. We use technologically advanced diagnostic tools while checking the parts. First, we view the MOT history of your vehicle to find if there are any recurring issues.
Take a look at the components we inspect while conducting MOT Test Burton on Trent:
If your car’s exhaust emission level does not meet government standards, it may fail the MOT assessment. We will inspect the exhaust components, such as the catalytic converter, resonator, oxygen sensor, exhaust manifold, etc., to check their functionality.
Suspension facilitates a smooth and safe driving experience. It absorbs the shock from driving on uneven road conditions and offers you a bump-free ride. Any malfunction in suspension components, like springs, struts, linkage, ball joints, etc., can lead to MOT failure. We carefully inspect the suspension components to ensure they are working optimally.
A faulty braking system can lead to severe safety-related hazards. Brake components like the master cylinder, calliper, brake pad, pedal, discs, rotors, etc., when functioning optimally, can offer a safe driving experience. We will inspect those components while conducting MOT Burton on Trent.
We check the tread depth, tyre condition, etc., in assessing vehicle roadworthiness.
Here are some more components that we inspect:
- Seat and seatbelts
- Wiper blades
- Registration plate, etc.
If there are zero Dangerous or Major issues, we will provide a VT20 certificate to your vehicle. With this certificate, you can drive legally for a year. However, if there are any Major or Dangerous issues in your vehicle, your car will get a VT30 certificate. You can opt for post-MOT repair and get a free partial re-test within ten working days.
