MOT & Retesting


Anyone residing in the territorial domain of the United Kingdom knows the obligatory and imperative nature of MOT Sawston. Driving without a valid MOT certification is a direct violation of the legal premises and is punishable by heavy fines. So, this goes without saying that securing an MOT certification is absolutely imperative. However, before you drive straight for an MOT test, you must first familiarize yourself with the concept of MOT.

What is an MOT Test?

MOT stands for Ministry Of Transport. The MOT Test is an inspection that decides whether a vehicle is fit for the road or not. Put simply, it measures a vehicle’s roadworthiness. This test is conducted at various test centres affiliated to MOT. However, garages that manage to acquire the official authorisation can also conduct an MOT test.

Now, it’s time to understand the formal procedure of an MOT evaluation. It basically involves a full-scale inspection and evaluation of a vehicle. This test investigates various parts and regions of a car such as the engine, clutch, transmission, brakes, seatbelts, tyres, etc., and determines if they are in a roadworthy condition. Even though it is an elaborate process, but it isn’t a time consuming one. It can take around 45-60 minutes to finalize the entire procedure.

The process is undertaken by professional automotive experts and every region, part, and area of a vehicle is evaluated in a very scrutinized manner.

Driving Without an MOT Certification

In simple words, it is plain illegal to drive on the roads of the UK without a valid MOT permit. One can invite a fine of up to £2500 if found driving without an MOT. It can also lead to the cancellation of the driver’s license if the matter gets any more serious. All-in-all, it is highly inadvisable to drive a vehicle that does not possess an MOT certification.
