Motorcycle MOT’s

 

MOT testing is a legal requirement for all vehicles over three years old, with the purpose of making sure that your motorcycle meets the minimum safety requirements. Without a valid MOT, your motorcycle insurance and road tax become invalidated and your motorcycle may not be road worthy. Therefore, it is important that you make sure your MOT certificate is in date and you book your next MOT before your current certificate expires. You can do this up to one month before the end of your current MOT certificate.

 

How are vehicles tested?

MOT test stations have designated test bays where they conduct the test, using a range of specialised equipment.

The test procedures are laid out in a manual which available to view if you want to look at it. If your vehicle has failed the test, you will be given a failure document with reference to this manual. You can watch the test from a designated viewing area but you are not allowed to interrupt the tester while he is working.

All MOT testers have been on a training course with the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) and their competence to test is checked regularly.

 

Replacing lost or damaged MOT certificates

If you have lost or damaged your certificate, you can get a duplicate from any MOT testing station.

You’ll need to provide the vehicle registration mark and either the original MOT test number, or V5C document reference number – this can be found on the registration certificate (V5C).

The fee for a duplicate certificate for a motorcycle is £10.00
