The MOT Test
When does a car require an MOT?
The first MOT on a car should take place when the vehicle is 3 years old – please note that this could be different if this has 9 seats or more and/or is a taxi. An MOT tests the important elements of your vehicle to ensure they meet the minimum legal requirements, you should continue to make sure that your car maintains this standard as a minimum at all times. As the registered owner of the vehicle, it is your responsibility to ensure the vehicle is examined every 12 months.
You must get an MOT for your vehicle by:
- The third anniversary of its registration
- The anniversary of its last MOT, if it’s over 3 years old
Please note that some vehicles need to be tested from one year old – see DVSA website for full details.

What our customers think
“I have today used Westgate tyres for the first time today but not the last. I ordered 4 winter tyres online on Wednesday afternoon and had them fitted at lunchtime today. The staff are very polite and courteous and super efficient. It was very busy whilst I was there and the lady on the reception was doing a hundred things at once whilst still managing to be friendly and efficient. The prices are very competitive and I will definitely return when I need my tyres changing back to summer ones. Well done Westgate tyres. Keep up the good work! ”
