What is a MOT history check?

In the UK, an MOT history check is a process that allows individuals to access and review the MOT (Ministry of Transport) test history of a vehicle. The MOT is a mandatory annual inspection that assesses a vehicle’s roadworthiness and safety. An MOT history check provides important information about a vehicle’s past MOT tests, including pass/fail records, advisory notes, and the dates of previous tests. Here’s what you can typically learn from an MOT history check:

Previous MOT Tests: You can see a list of all the previous MOT tests the vehicle has undergone, along with the dates of these tests.

Pass or Fail: The results of each MOT test are indicated, so you can quickly determine whether the vehicle passed or failed the test.

MOT Test Certificate: Access to the certificate number for each test is provided, allowing you to verify the validity of the certificate.

Advisory Notes: Any advisory notes made by the MOT tester during the test are included. These notes highlight issues that don’t constitute a fail but are worth addressing for safety and performance reasons.

Mileage: The recorded mileage of the vehicle at the time of the MOT test is usually displayed.

An MOT history check is a valuable tool when buying a used vehicle, as it helps you assess the vehicle’s condition and maintenance history. It can reveal a lot about the vehicle’s past and whether it has any recurring issues. You can typically perform an MOT history check on the official government website or through various online services and applications dedicated to providing this information. It’s an essential step when considering the purchase of a used vehicle to ensure that it has been well-maintained and complies with legal safety standards.
