A few of the checkpoints:

  • Brakes: The brake condition- and performance are thoroughly assessed to make sure the Vehicle can be stopped fast and efficiently.
  • Lights and Signals: All lights, indicators, headlights, hazard lights, etc., work correctly.
  • Suspension: The suspension system is inspected to ensure there is no excessive, potentially dangerous wear.
  • Steering: The Vehicle's steering system is checked to ensure optimal control and stability.
  • Wheels and Tyres: The tread depth, overall condition, and inflation level of the tyres are assessed, and the condition of the wheels and valves is checked.
  • Exhaust and Emissions: Your Vehicle's exhaust system is checked, and the emissions are measured to ensure legal compliments.
  • Seat Belts: The seat belts are inspected to guarantee driver- and passenger safety.
  • Overall body condition and structure: The structure and body condition of a vehicle are reviewed, checking for excessive rust or damages that could potentially compromise safety.
  • VIN (Vehicle Identification Number): It is one of the first things that is checked to make sure the Vehicle is registered correctly.

These are only a few examples. You can find the complete list of checkpoints on the Government website.

Please note: Preparing the Vehicle before taking it for an MOT is always a good idea.

Come to us for a Pre-MOT Check or combine the test with vehicle service.

This is how it is done:

Arrive at Somerset Tyres:

On the day of the MOT, please ensure you arrive at the Somerset Tyres workshop on time, as the test takes time.

MOT Test Process:

The certified Somerset Tyres and Serving MOT testers will thoroughly inspect your Vehicle according to the official checklist. This entire process takes about 45 minutes.

Receive Test Results:

After the test is completed, you will be informed about the results. If the Vehicle passes, a VT20 certificate will be issued, which is valid for 12 months. If the Vehicle fails the test, a VT30 certificate will be issued. Attached to this certificate is the reason(s) (Major or Dangerous).

Addressing Failures:

Until all issues are rectified, driving or even parking the vehicle on public roads is not allowed. Once all issues have been resolved, a partial re-test must be carried out. Afterwards, a VT20 is issued.
