Does you car need an MOT in Wakefield?

If your car is over 3 years old it now needs an annual MOT inspection. It's a standard inspection of over 150 safety related and emission systems, including lights, brakes and suspension.

It's your responsiblity to ensure your vehicle is examined every 12 months. Without a valid MOT certificate you will be unable to drive your vehicle legally and you won't be able to renew your road tax.

Once your vehicle has been tested you will receive the official VT20 certificate which is your receipt for the MOT test and shows the information that will be held on the MOT database. If your vehicle should require any recommended additional work this will be listed on the advisory notice of the VT32 document.

The MOT test covers the following
  • Bonnet catch
  • Horn
  • Numberplate and VIN
  • Lights
  • Brakes
  • Wheels and Tyres
  • Mirrors
  • Doors
  • Seats
  • Vehicle Structure
  • Suspension
  • Fuel System
  • Exhaust and Emmissions
  • Seat Belts
  • Steering
  • Windscreen
  • Wipers and Washer Fluid
