How to pass your MOT

MOT Test and how to pass it:

You need to check the following parts of your car and make sure there is no damage or fault:

  1. Windscreen wipers: - Check there are no cracks/chips or damage.

  1. Indicators and headlights:- Make sure your headlights, rear lights, hazard lights, side lights and indicators are all working. 

  1. Fuel and Engine oil:- You must have enough fuel and oil before your test. The mechanics need fuel and oil so they can test the emissions on the car. 

  1. Seat belts and Seats:- You can test the seat belts by tugging on all of them to make sure they are working properly. 

  1. Screen wash:- If your screen wash is empty- you will fail your MOT

  1. Brake Lights:- You will need to get someone to stand behind your car to check that your brake lights are working before you take your car in for it's MOT.

  1. Windscreen wipers:- Any damage to your windscreen wipers can result in an MOT test fail. Make sure they are clean and damage free. 

  1. Number plate:- Your number plates must be clear and visible. If you have a personalised number plate make sure it meets the legal requirements. 

  1. Horn: You will need to get your horn fixed if it isn't working properly as this can result in a MOT test fail. 

  1. Tyres and Wheels:- The legal minimum tread depth for your tyres is 1.6mm, if they are less than that then you will fail your MOT test.
