Why You Should Get An MOT Early

We all know that most vehicles need to have an MOT test (and pass it) in order to have their road tax renewed. Despite this being an annual ritual, it is far from a mere formality. Booking your MOT test with A&D Autos in Bognor Regis will ensure that you have an MOT test provided by reliable and experienced professionals.

So, Why Should You Take Your Vehicle For Its MOT Early?

Many people decide to leave the MOT test until the last few days before expiration, or even forget about it (7 months is our latest record so far!).  If your vehicle does fail its MOT test, you may need time to fix it, and your previous MOT certificate may expire in the meantime. This is why it is smart to have the MOT performed earlier, so that any repairs can be carried out before your current MOT certificate expires.

Here at A&D Autos we can provide you with an MOT test at a time that is convenient for you, and we are more than happy to quote you for any works that may be required to get your vehicle through its MOT and back on the road (even if we did not carry out the original MOT).

If your MOT is booked in one month prior to your expiry date, your new MOT certificate will be valid for 13 months. This means the best time to book your vehicle in for its MOT is between 10-28 days before the expiry date of the current MOT.

What Does An MOT Test Cover?

During the MOT test the A&D Autos experts will check the following main areas:

  • Lighting
  • Suspension and steering
  • Brakes
  • Tyres and wheels
  • Seat belts
  • Body and structure
  • Emissions, exhaust and fuel
  • Driver’s view of the road

The above points cover the general safety, roadworthiness and emissions of your vehicle ensuring it is safe for you and your passengers. At A&D Autos we will always advise you of any other advisories on your vehicle too.
