An MOT test is an annual safety examination of your car or van. All cars over three years old require a valid certificate by law, otherwise your insurance could be invalid. From May 2018 all cars over forty years old do not require the test either, unless owners chose to have them carried out. If you’re unsure it’s best to check.
The majority of cars are required to pass an MOT test each year. It is also recommended that you put your car through an annual service although this is not a legal requirement.
