You should be aware that it is an offence to use a vehicle on the road that requires, but does not have, a current MOT certificate.
The only circumstances in which you may use a vehicle without a current MOT certificate is when making the journey to an authorised MOT test station for the purposes of the test. Such a journey can only be made to meet a pre-arranged appointment with the testing station for the performance of an MOT test.
Did you know that MOT rules have recently changed?
If a vehicle fails the MOT test by way of a “dangerous defect” you are no longer able to drive it away from the test station. If you do, you can be fined up to £2,500, be banned from driving and get 3 penalty points. So, if your vehicle does fail, you will need to arrange for it to be transported or repaired at the test centre.

Keeping you on the road
In the event that your motorcycle fails the MOT test we offer a free re-test within 10 days. This is only available if the motorcycle is returned to the same MOT testing facility that conducted the original test.
With our extensive on-site workshop facilities we can usually remedy or replace anything that might have caused your bike to fail the MOT test.
We will always advise you about any reason for failure (we issue a document that provides specific details). We will always consult with you before undertaking any remedial action that may be necessary for your motorcycle to successfully pass the MOT test.
