How to get an MOT reminder
Thursday 14th July 2022
A staple of car maintenance, our annual MOT tests come around surprisingly quickly and can be easily missed. However, fear not – there are ways to ensure you don’t forget, such as setting up MOT reminders.
Do you get an MOT reminder?
Depending on where you’ve had your MOT test conducted previously, this garage or dealership may use an MOT reminder service, prompting you by telephone, email or letter. However, one of the best ways to receive an MOT reminder service is by registering with Formula One Autocentres.
Set up MOT reminder
Here at Formula One Autocentres, we provide a tax, insurance, service and MOT reminder service. This automated service reminds you of your key motoring dates via email and/or SMS – whichever you prefer. All you need to do is register by our easy-to-use form providing your email address and mobile number!
Although this MOT reminder service will prompt you when your MOT is due, you can also use this GOV.uk link to find out when your MOT renewal is due. This also tells you when your vehicle tax is due, as well as details about your vehicle.
Do DVLA send MOT reminders?
Yes – but you’ll need to sign up, first. GOV.uk will send free car MOT reminders by text message or email to let you know when your MOT is due.
However, by registering with your local Formula One Autocentres, you can also have reminders for other key motoring dates:
- Car Tax Reminder - for reminding you when your road tax is up for renewal
- Car Insurance Reminder - for reminding you when your car insurance is about to expire
- MOT Reminder Service - for reminding you when your next MOT is required
- Car Service Reminder - for informing you when your car is due for its next service
On top of this, the service is completely free – meaning you can remain safe in the knowledge that your car maintenance reminders are taken care of all year round. We know how easy it is to forget these crucial dates, so we try to make the process as seamless as possible for all our customers.
