MOT Testing - The Facts
Every vehicle requires an MOT test on the anniversary of its last test. The due date of its first test is determined by the vehicle’s registration date - if your car is brand new, you won’t need an MOT test until the third anniversary of its registration. (The rules are slightly different for some specialist vehicles, such as taxis and ambulances, farm tractors, lorries and buses.)
If you’re caught driving without a valid MOT certificate, you’ll get a £1000 fine and your vehicle could even be impounded. The only exception is if you’re driving your vehicle to its test - but you’ll need to provide proof of this.
Different classes of vehicles are covered by different MOT tests. At New Chapel Garage, we provide MOT tests for all class 4 vehicles, which includes cars and light commercial vans.
To ensure your MOT test station is approved by the DVSA, look out for the blue ‘three triangles’ logo which official stations are required to display.

Tests generally take around 45 minutes to complete. Simply drop off your vehicle at our onsite parking and we’ll call you when it’s ready; or relax in our waiting room with a free tea or coffee and watch your MOT from the garage’s viewing bay.
If your car doesn’t pass first time around, no problem - our expert mechanics will carry out all the necessary repairs to ensure your retest goes smoothly.
