Mot Testing Centre High Wycombe
Everyone who uses a car on the motorway should keep it in a roadworthy condition. The MOT test checks that vehicles meet the Highway Agencies standards. The first MOT test for a vehicle is required when it’s three years old. There are different rules if it’s used as a taxi.
The MOT certificate
The MOT certification authenticates that at the performance tuning, the automobile meets the minimum level of environmental standards. The certification also confirms that the car qualifies the minimum level of road safety standards that are specified by law. It doesn’t necessarily mean that the automobile is secure for utilising on the road for the period of time the certificate is issued. The test doesn’t analyse the engine and clutch. The testing of the gearbox is also not included in the MOT, so these are things to consider when booking your MOT.
