Today here at Greenoaks Garage we will be discussing exactly why MOT tests are important for you and your vehicle and why you are legally required to have these tests done once a year on a vehicle that is older than 3 years old.
MOT tests are done to check that your vehicle is allowed to be on the road without being unsafe to other road users, yourself, your passengers or even pedestrians. This is done by checking all the individual parts of your vehicle to make sure that they are working properly without being potential threats to other road users and pedestrians. These checks need to be done yearly as something could start to fail in your vehicle without you even noticing. MOT Tests make sure that your vehicle is safe to drive and that nothing is going wrong that could endanger you, pedestrians, passengers or other road users.
These checks are vital to make sure that your car is healthy, think of it as an annual check-up at the doctors or a dental check-up. If your car passes the test then you only need to pay for the testing fee, but if your vehicle fails the test, then you need to pay to get it repaired or it isn’t legally allowed on the road and it could get taken off you by the police and you would face court action.
