Tips before your MOT

Here's what you should be checking before you book your MOT.

Headlights and Indicators

Check that all of your car's lights function properly - headlights, sidelights, rear lights, hazard lights and indicators.

Brake Lights

Press the brake pedal and ask a friend or family member to check that the rear brake lights come on, including any strip lights.


Make sure the number plate is clean and legible - even a quick wipe with a cloth can make all the difference.

Wheels and Tyres

The minimum legal tyre tread depth is 1.6mm and any tyres with less than this will fail an MOT. You should see wear markers on your tyres.

Seats and Seatbelts

Your seat should adjust back and forth, and seatbelts need to work properly. Tug on the belts to check they react as they should when braking.


Any windscreen cracks greater than 40mm will cause a fail, as will any damage larger than 10mm in the area of the windscreen in front of the driver


Top up the washer bottle before taking the car in for an MOT - something as simple as an empty container can cause an MOT to fail.


Give the horn a blast - if it doesn't work, it will need to be repaired.

Fuel and Engine Oil

Make sure your car is filled with enough fuel and engine oil - you can be turned away from the MOT without sufficient levels of either as both are required to run the vehicle to test emission levels.
