MOT Information

Formula One Autocentres carry out over a hundred thousand MOT's per year and have over 85 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.
