Arranging your MOT
An MOT is an annual inspection required of every vehicle on the road over three years old. An MOT will check that all your major components are in working order and that your car is roadworthy.
The first MOT is due on a car when it reaches three years from its registration date.

What is checked on an MOT?
An MOT is a check of your vehicle’s main components to make sure there is efficient functionality for basic road safety. Without passing the test your vehicle is not legally allowed to take to the road.
Nearly half of all MOT failures could have been prevented with simple checks which you can do at home, so before you take your vehicle to your local Lookers take a look at what you can do to ensure you pass your MOT with flying colours.
These are the key components our expert manufacturer trained technicians will be testing during your vehicle’s MOT.
