P. Hill Autos St Albans Car and Van MOT Test Centre

If your vehicle is 3 years or older you are required by law to have an annual safety check, the Ministry of Transport test, commonly known as the MOT test.
The purpose of the MOT is to ensure the vehicle meets the minimum safety levels required by law.

During the MOT test the nominated tester, a person authorised by the government body called VOSA (Vehicle and Operator Services Agency) will conduct an inspection and series of checks around the vehicle, including the interior, exterior, under the bonnet and under the vehicle. The result of each check is recorded - if the vehicle passes a VT20 "Pass" certificate is issued. If the vehicle fails to meet the required standard a VT30 "Failure" document is issued. Items that are not quite a failure, but worthy of a mention to you so that you can keep an eye on them, are drawn to your attention as "asvisory items".

It is your responsibility to ensure your vehicle is examined every 12 months. Without a current MOT certificate, you will be unable to drive your vehicle lawfully or renew your road fund licence.

Recent computerisation of the MOT testing system by VOSA means police and mobile camera units can now check remotely to see if your vehicle has a current MOT.
