Once your new car hits the age of 3 years old, then it is subject to the UK’s very strict MOT test. This test makes sure that your vehicle is good enough to be driving around on UK roads and it is one way to protect yourself and other road users. There is no getting around it as it is legally mandated and you can’t get your road tax and insurance without the piece of paper that says your vehicle passed. If you are not mechanically minded, then this is a job for your local mechanic and he knows what to do.
If you are looking for a qualified car MOT in St George, then you will find a number of garages that are more than happy to get your car ready. There are a number of things that need to be checked.
- The windscreen of your car needs to not have cracks or breaks in it. Your local mechanic will see if you need to replace your windscreen or not. You can fail the test because of this.
- The exhaust on your car needs to be in good condition and fixed properly to the car. If it has a small hole, then this needs to be mended and brackets need to be tightened or changed.
- A simple thing like a registration plate needs to be clean and easy to read. If it isn’t, then your mechanic will get it replaced. Otherwise, your car will fail the test.
The MOT is an essential part of motoring in the United Kingdom, so get your car into your mechanic sooner rather than later.
