How the MOT test works
During the MOT, important parts of your vehicle will be checked to ensure they meet the legal standards. You can watch the test from a viewing area but cannot interrupt the tester.
Check Your MOT History
Our free to use MOT History tool provides detailed information for each MOT test your vehicle has undergone, including the test result, the recorded mileage, and, importantly, the expiry date of the test. For cars, motorcycles and vans you can get results for tests done since 2005.
For HGVs, trailers, buses and coaches you can only get results for tests done since 2018.
