WHAT HAPPENS ON AN MOT?
What happens on an MOT?
During the MOT test the nominated tester (a person authorised, by the UK government body who regulates MOT VOSA -Vehicle and Operator Services Agency-) this person will conduct an inspection based on a comprehensive series of checks around the vehicle to include: Interior, Exterior, Engine compartment, and the underside of the vehicle.
The result of each check is recorded and if the vehicle passes the MOT, then a VT40 or "Pass Certificate" is issued.
However if the vehicle fails to meet the required standard then a VT30 "Failure Document" is issued, which explains which checks the vehicle has failed on the test and you will be required to make the repairs to the vehicle before you can allow the vehicle to re-sit the MOT test. We will be happy to provide you with a quotation to undertake this work, whilst the vehicle is within the garage to help you get on the road again.
The vehicle may pass the MOT test, but have "Advisory Items". These are point that don't fail the test, but are worthy of mention to you, so you can keep an eye on them, as they may need repaired / replaced in the near future.
