Your car’s safety and roadworthiness depend on the MOT test. What if it fails, though? Except while traveling to a scheduled MOT appointment, it is normally against the law to drive without a current MOT.
Fining, receiving penalty points, and even having one’s vehicle seized are all legal repercussions. If you suffer an accident, insurance coverage can also be rejected.
To remain lawful and safe:
Avoid driving a MOT-failing vehicle and put safety first.
Do repairs at a licensed garage.
Check for a valid MOT certificate again after repairs.
Always keep in mind that receiving a MOT signifies a dedication to driving safely.
