How to prepare for your MOT

Even without being a mechanic, there are a number of things that you can do in order to improve your changes of passing your MOT without a hitch.

  • Check that all your lights are functional. Give your indicators, brake lights, hazard light and even your number plate lamps a quick check.
  • Check your wipers and washers. Make sure that your washers have water in them and that they are spraying correctly. Also make sure that your wipers do not have any significant cracks or chunks taken out of them.
  • Check your tyres. Do any of your tyres have and cuts or bald patches on them? If a tyre is too worn, this can be a failure. If you have a spare tyre, consider using this instead – spare tyres are not checked as part of an MOT.
  • Check your horn. Have you used your horn recently? Double check it is working.
  • Check your mirrors. Give your mirrors a quick once over to ensure that they are not loose.

What happens if your car fails its MOT?

Most importantly – don’t panic! If you car fails the MOT test then you will need to have repairs done. Unfortunately this means that the price of your MOT will increase, but you can be safe in the knowledge that any risks that may have been present in your vehicle will be sorted.

More good news –  providing you have these repairs done at the garage that carried out the test, you’ll be entitled to a free retest, as long as it is done within 10 working days.
