If your vehicle is more than three years old you will have to get it tested every year to show that it meets the minimum road safety and environmental standards.
There are different rules if you use the vehicle as a taxi.
An MOT certificate confirms that at the time of the test your vehicle met, as far as can be reasonably determined without dismantling, the minimum acceptable environmental and road safety standards required by law.
An MOT certificate does not mean that the vehicle is roadworthy for the life of the certificate and is not a substitute for regular maintenance.
