The MOT test stands for Automobile Performance and Emissions. This test is performed by a trained, qualified and experienced technician using approved guidelines and methods. The MOT test center is located at junctions with motorway junctions. In the UK, the MOT test centers are at Arundel, Birmingham, Clacton, East Midlands, Gateshead, London Heathrow, Manchester, North Wales, Scottish Islands, Sheppey, Somerset and Warwickshire. If you live outside the UK, you can book your MOT test online at the MOT test centre’s website.
The MOT test center offers two different ways to schedule your MOT. You can either book it online or at the center. The choice is made easy with the availability of dedicated mot testing centers that have complete service packages catering to customers coming from anywhere in the UK. The MOT includes the full year of car warranty, third party coverage, European driving policy, MOT test fee, vehicle inspection, road safety test, vision examination, and several driver educational sessions. To help ensure that the customer receives a perfect car, MOT certificate fee discounts are offered.
The MOT testing center uses a computer-driven speed trap to measure the vehicle speed, acceleration and cornering. The computer uses data such as speed, fuel, engine temperature, brake balance and others to calculate the speed of the vehicle at various test locations. Based on this information, a specialist inspector investigates the car and performs a wide range of visual inspections. Some inspections include the following:
After the inspection is complete, the specialist issues a certificate, which is then valid for a certain period of time, called the MOT test drive. The MOT tester uses a checklist to identify any problem areas on the vehicle that need further assessment. The MOT certificate includes a list of all the defects on the car that were identified during the tester’s visual inspection and repair work. The certificate also includes a description of each specific defect, the repair process that has been undertaken to fix the problem, a description of the car and a photo of the car taken at the MOT testing center by the inspector. It should be noted that some vehicles do not have a window sticker on the bonnet or engine compartment, meaning that the owner will have to carry out the entire inspection procedure manually.
A MOT (measured gas ignition engine) certificate is issued after the MOT testing is complete. This document will show that the vehicle has passed all the MOT inspections and has passed the specified age. The MOT testing center will issue a V TN (Vehicles Testing Certificate) after the MOT is complete in order to indicate that the vehicle passed all its tests and meets certain minimum safety requirements.
If the car fails an MOT it will receive an MOT test documentation, called the V TN. The MOT test documentation is issued to the customer after the car has passed the visual inspection as well as all other operational tests administered by the MOT center. If there are any technical issues that need to be fixed the MOT center might issue a V TN to the customer indicating the problem and the steps that have been taken to correct the problem. If there are any engine faults that need to be repaired before the end of the test the MOT center might issue a V TN. Once the V TN has been issued, the customer can arrange for the work to be carried out by the authorized MOT service center that the certificate was issued through.
