What is an MOT Test?

Is your vehicle 3 years old or Older? Then it is required by law to have an MOT test. This is an annual safety check to ensure that it meets the minimum standards for safety and roadworthiness. To avoid your vehicle failing for cheap and easily fixable reasons it is always a good idea to perform a few simple Pre MOT Checks for your Car or for your Bike.
