In the United Kingdom, all vehicles that are older than three years are required by law to have an MOT. This is an annual test to ensure that all vehicles that are driven on public roads are road-worthy. They are tested for safety and emissions in particular.
You cannot drive your vehicle on the road if the MOT has run out and you can be prosecuted if caught!
DID YOU KNOW??
You can get an MOT up to a month (minus a day) before it runs out and keep the same renewal date.
