Servicing & MOT are an essential parts of maintaining your vehicle ensuring its road
worthiness, reducing the risk of a breakdown and meeting your legal requirements
as a car or commercial vehicle owner.
Servicing your vehicle is an essential way of maintaining its performance, reliability
and reducing the impact your vehicle has on the environment. Some owners service
their vehicles annually or after a certain number of miles have been reached, typically
12,000 miles on an average car.
MOT's are a legal obligation for all vehicles over 3 years old. You are required
by law to ensure your vehicle has an up to date valid Ministry of Transport (MOT)
test certificate. MOT testers must be authorised by the government body VOSA (Vehicle
and Operator Services Agency).
"If you don't have a valid up to date MOT certificate you may be liable to a fine
and your insurance will not be valid"
During your MOT your vehicle undergoes a number of checks and tests to ensure its
road worthiness including the interior, exterior and under the body. If a vehicle
passes all of the required tests a VT20 pass certificate is issued. Some items may
not fully pass the required testing levels but the vehicle may pass the MOT overall,
in this instance advisory items may be notified to you should you need to be made
aware of them.
If you don't have a valid up to date MOT certificate and you are involved in an accident
or required to produce your vehicle documentation by law, then you may be liable
to a fine and your insurance will not be valid.
