Passing the MOT

If your vehicle passes the MOT:

  • You'll get an MOT certificate from the test centre
  • It will be recorded in the MOT database

Mileage Reading

The MOT certificate will show the mileage recorded at the current and previous 3 test passes. This is shown as the ‘odometer reading and history’.

Failing the MOT

If your vehicle fails the MOT:

  • You'll get a 'refusal of an MOT test certificate' from the test centre
  • It will be recorded in the MOT dtabase

You can appeal the result if you think its wrong.


Driving a vehicle that's failed

You can take your vehicle away if your MOT certificate is still valid.

If your MOT has run out you can take it to:

  • Have the failed defects fixed
  • A pre-arranged MOT test appointment

In both cases, your vehicle still needs to meet the minimum standards of road worthiness at all times or you can be fined

  • Goods vehicles powered by electricity
  • Tractors

A list of exempt types of vehicles is on form V112. You need to fill in the form if your vehicle is listed so that you can tax it.
