Every vehicle in the UK needs to be tested annually to ensure that it complies with the minimum road safety and environmental standards. If your vehicle is over 3 years old, this test is compulsory. Failure to provide a validfor any vehicle could result in a fine of £1,000.
An MOT is a written confirmation that on the day of testing, the vehicle met the minimum standards that the law demands. It tests both the general standards of the safety of your vehicle and the levels of emissions produced by your car’s. It’s important to remember that the MOT only guarantees that your vehicle meets the minimum standards on the day of the test: it doesn’t guarantee that the vehicle will remain roadworthy for the duration of the certificate. Unfortunately, there’s no substitute for regular servicing. Bakestone motors will happily carry out regular servicing to ensure that your vehicle remains in tip top condition.

A failed MOT indicates that your vehicle does not meet the minimum safety standards for road use, and therefore Bakestone Motors would caution against using your car until if has been repaired and re-tested. There may be an additional fee for an MOT re-test if your vehicle is not repaired and presented within 24 hours. For further clarification, please contact us on 01625 872807 or 0161 483 7526.
