MOT Information

Formula One Autocentres carry out over a hundred thousand MOT's per year and have over 100 state-of-the-art MOT testing stations situated across the UK, which are all approved by the Government-appointed Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). All MOT tests are carried out by Formula One Autocentres’ MOT testers who have been appointed and nominated by the DVSA

All cars 3 years old and over require a valid MOT certificate with mandatory testing every year thereafter. Find out more about MOT testing and what’s involved with our easy to understand guide.

MOT tests can be conducted on your car up to one month prior to the expiry date of an existing MOT certificate, provided that a current MOT certificate is presented to the examiner at the time of the test.

On passing the MOT test, the car will receive a certificate valid from the date of expiry of your existing MOT certificate.

If your car fails its MOT test, a retest fee will apply if your vehicle is removed from the test centre for repair and returned within 7 working days following the day it originally failed. Please see full terms and conditions for more information.

Contact your nearest Formula One Autocentres MOT test centre for more information or book your next MOT test online today. It couldn’t be simpler!

  • Very well organised with a professional and friendly approach. Everything was explained clearly and I'm very happy with the work carried out. I had four new tyres and tracking done and the handling of the car is so much better for it. I liked that there were no hidden charges and it was easy to use your website to find the best option for me. Thanks.
