All motor vehicles in the UK must undergo a regular Ministry of Transport (MOT) test to ensure that they are roadworthy. Many vehicles only require an MOT once they reach three years old, but they must still be roadworthy. There are also different tests for different classes of road vehicle. At our MOT test centre, in Newport, Gwent, we carry out a variety of MOT tests for our customers. Additionally, we complete car repairs and service air conditioning systems.
It is an offence to drive an unroadworthy vehicle on the public highway except during the trip to or from a pre-arranged MOT test or to or from a place of repair where any faults are to be repaired. A valid MOT certificate is an indication that the vehicle is safe to use, and your insurance may be invalid if you use a car that doesn't have one.
The UK has more than 20,000 approved MOT testing stations working to keep cars on the road safely, all of which must display the blue and white three triangles logo (shown right) . This is to show that they are a registered and approved testing station and are approved to work on your vehicle.
