|Preparing your car properly for the
MOT test can make financial sense. Lets say for example you put
your car into your local MOT test station and it fails. You will
then need to spend the time either repairing the faults or have
a garage do it for you. It will also waste time that could have
been avoided if you knew what was wrong with the vehicle before
you had it tested.
Knowing of problems in advance will allow you the time to
have the issues resolved prior to the test being carried out. This
can add up to a saving in terms of time and also money.

This will enable you to know in advance, of any problems or
issues your car has, that may prevent it from being able to pass
the MOT test.
The MOT test it's self will take approximately 45 mins.
During this time you will not generally have access to the
vehicle. Most MOT testing stations will provide a waiting area
for you, or if you would rather you can leave and come back to
collect the car later on.
MOT test stations also provide an area where you can observe
the actual test being carried out. This area will be marked out
within the MOT testing area. You must not got closer to the
actual test area than you are permitted. This is in the interests
of health and safety. If you are in any doubt about where you
are allowed to go please ask at the MOT testing station.
Once the MOT test has been carried out the vehicle will
either pass of fail the MOT. If your vehicle passed you
will receive a computerised MOT test certificate. If it fails
you will receive failure notice. The failure notice will list
all items that failed and a description as to why the item
resulted in an MOT failure.
Sometimes a vehicle will pass the
mot test but the tester who carried out the test has noticed
some minor faults. If these faults are not bad enough to result
in an MOT failure, but are bad enough to inform the
vehicle owner then an advisory note will be issued.
