Frequently asked questions

All vehicles over 3 years old, are required by law to have an MOT. The Ministry Of Transport test is an annual safety check to verify and ensure all vehicles on the UK roads pass a minimum standard safety and levels of exhaust emissions, as set by the government agency, the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency.

All MOT tests are conducted by a certified and approved tester and MOT tests can be carried out up to one month prior to the expiry date of a current MOT certificate, provided that the current MOT certificate is presented when the car is brought in. On passing the MOT test, your car will receive a certificate valid from the date of expiry of your existing MOT certificate.

If your car fails its MOT test, we provide a free retest within 10 working days providing all failure items have been resolved.

The only thing you need to bring with you is the vehicle being tested! Our nominated tester will be able to look up your vehicle on the DVSA database to find the existing MOT details.

The MOT test takes approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour to complete. Leicester Motors is equipped with comfortable seating, so you can make yourself at home and we will carry out your MOT while you wait. If you wish, there is a viewing window to see the MOT test being carried on your vehicle. 

Your MOT expiry date will be located on your most recent MOT certificate. If you do not have this, you can use the “MOT Status” button above to find out.
