Instituted in the 1960s by the Ministry of Transport, a modern MOT test is one of the most exhaustive assessments of a vehicle’s roadworthiness, emissions and safety standards. Without a valid MOT ‘pass’ or VT20 certificate, it is a statutory offence to drive in the United Kingdom.
Any vehicle that is at least 3 years old must pass an MOT test every year.
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency or DVSA identifies garages and service stations across the country and certifies them to carry out MOT tests. There are more than 23,000 testing facilities in Scotland, Wales and England.
If you stay in or around Lincolnshire, visit us, Dack Motor Group , for a comprehensive and professional MOT check Lincoln .
Before we begin the test, we check MOT history to see whether there were any issues (advisory notes etc.) mentioned. That way, we can lay special emphasis on certain parts or systems.
Note that we specialise in vehicles categorised as Class 4 and Class 7. Any private car with up to 12 seats comes under Class 4, while good vehicles with Design Gross Weight or DGW of 3,000 to 3,500 kg is categorised as a Class 7 vehicle.
MOT tests are identical for these 2 classes.
An MOT check Lincoln includes:
Besides these, we will also inspect the horn, mirrors and windscreen.
In case your vehicle fails an MOT check, the VT30 certificate will list all areas of defect. If you wish, we can certainly help with post-MOT repairs so you can re-present the vehicle for a partial re-test within 10 days.
Please note: After your vehicle has failed its MOT, you are no longer allowed to drive until all issues are fixed.
