In the UK, the MOT test is required by the law for vehicles that are older than 3 years. It is compulsory to have this test annually for these vehicles. Some vehicles require this test even after getting 1 year old only. It is set by the DVSA to conduct strictly for the vehicles to keep a check if they are safe to drive on the roads. There is a wide variety of approved checks set by the DVSA examiners for the cars like lightings, seat belts, tyres, etc.
When the MOT is done by the DVSA examiner, it means that the tester will give the information of the same day condition of the car. For example, they won’t check how tyres will work after 6 months.
After having this MOT Bilston test, if the vehicle passes but has minor problems or issues, the tester will ask to keep an eye on them and fix them. They will provide you with a pass certificate. But if the vehicle needs some major changes or has some major problems, they will ask you to fix them at the same time.
This test does not give the general mechanical condition of the vehicle but strictly assesses the condition set by the DVSA examiner.
The MOT is not for vehicles that are less than three years old but the vehicles like ambulances and taxis need this test to be done after one year.
It needs to be renewed after every 12 months. The expiry date is always available on the previous pass certificate of MOT. You can have your test conducted before the expiry period. It can be done before 28 days and it will be counted as 13 months as your next due date.

TIME REQUIRED TO HAVE AN MOT
Time taken by the MOT test is nearly 45 minutes to 1 hour in which you are provided with wifi, tea, and a waiting area so that you do not feel tired or get bored. In this time the MOT tester checks the various systems of the cars like steering, seat belt, wheels, tyres, windscreen, fuel system, the body of the car, brakes, horn, wipers, emission produced by the car, vehicle number, and registration number of the car. The list is given by the DVSA examiner to specifically carry out the fixes in these areas and the number of items provided in the list to be checked upon.
