An MOT is the annual test most vehicles over three years old in Great Britain must pass in order to be able to drive on UK roads.
It's a great insight into the vehicle's past, showing if a vehicle failed it's MOT and why, and if there are any issues that might need attention. Issues identified in the MOT are called "advisories" or "minor defects". An MOT certificate also shows the mileages recorded on the vehicle's odometer when it was tested, this can be great for tracking how a vehicle has been used over the years.
Since May 2018 a vehicle may fail for reasons categorised as either "Major" or "Dangerous". To read more see https://mattersoftesting.blog.gov.uk/how-the-new-mot-defect-categories-will-work). Examples of these are tyres with very low tread, brakes that are defective or lights that don't work properly, all things that could stop you from driving safely day-to-day.
We show you: how many days are left before a vehicle needs its next MOT; average mileages per year; any mileage anomalies that might suggest the vehicle has been 'clocked' (i.e. had its mileage illegally reduced); and full details of all past MOTs, this should help you build a picture of the vehicles usage, health and cost of repair in the future.
The MOT history check is crucially important to discovering if a vehicle is suitable for purchase.
The first thing you should check is that if the vehicle is three years old or more that it has a valid MOT, without one it will not be legal for it to be on the road at all.
Next, you should check what's been happening in recent MOT's. Are there any advisories outstanding?
These are issues with the vehicle that the MOT garage has highlighted for your attention. It can be something like low tyre tread depth.
