MOT Tests

Before you take your car to the MOT test station, there are a few checks you can carry out yourself to help it pass. These include:

Lights – check all lights: side lights, rear lights, brake lights, main beam, fog lights, hazard lights, indicators etc. Replace bulbs where necessary

Screen wash – ensure this is topped up fully

Wipers – check for splits or worn rubber – replace if necessary

Windscreen – ensure there are no chips or cracks. Anything more than 10mm in zone ‘A’ which is the driver’s side of windscreen will cause the car to fail and anything beyond 40mm in zone ‘B’ which is windscreen wiper reach of the car will cause a fail.

Oil Levels – ensure the levels sit between minimum/maximum – top up if necessary

Registration Plates – ensure these are clean and undamaged

The above are common MOT failures so you can easily save yourself time by checking and rectifying these possible issues to help ensure an MOT pass.
