JHS Racing is an official motorcycle MOT testing station serving Bristol and Bath, authorised by DVSA (formerly VOSA) to perform tests for Class I and II vehicles (motorcycles).
An MOT certificate is a legal requirement for any vehicle older than three years from date of first UK new registration. For any such vehicle current MOT certification is also necessary in order to acquire road tax for the vehicle.
The MOT certification status is recorded on the central DVSA computer system which is referenced as part of the road fund licence issuing procedure. This data is also instantly available to police and traffic enforcement officers.
You can present your motorcycle for its MOT test up to 4 weeks prior to the formal date of requirement.
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 changed in 2018?
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 to have it repaired at the test centre.
