During the MoT test, a government-authorised tester will check your vehicle comprehensively, including the interior, exterior, under the bonnet and underneath the vehicle. The tester records each check and if your vehicle passes the test, you’ll be issued with a VT20 ‘pass’ certificate. If it fails, you’ll receive a VT30 ‘failure’ document. You’ll also be told of any ‘advisory’ items – those that haven’t quite failed the test, but which need careful monitoring.
The MoT test covers all the following:
- Vehicle Identification Number
- Registration Plate
- Steering & Suspension
- Wipers and washer bottle
- Fuel System
- Wheels & Tyres
