What is an MOT test?

The  MOT test (Ministry of Transport, or simply MOT) is an annual test of vehicle safety, roadworthiness aspects, and exhaust emissions. This is required in the UK for most vehicles over three years old and used in any way defined as a road in the Road Traffic Act 1988 [wiki source]

New rules came into force from May 2018, also something we here at GP Autos are aware of to ensure a vehicle is kept road legal.

These new changes mean MOT test faults will be classified as Minor, Major, and Dangerous. With Major and Dangerous issues causing an automatic MOT failure.

Cars with Minor defects will be allowed to pass the test. But faults will be recorded on the car’s MOT certificate and online MoT record, just as advisories are today.

Diesel cars will also have to meet strict new rules to pass their MOT. Any car fitted with a diesel particulate filter (DPF) that emits “visible smoke of any colour” during metered tests will get a Major fault and automatically fail its MOT.
