Standlake Vehicle Services has the latest in automated MOT testing facilities, allowing us to MOT all makes and models of vehicle. Our MOTs are carried out by trained, DVLA-approved MOT testers. We also offer MOTs for motorcycles.

MOT information

Passing and failing the MOT

If your vehicle passes the MOT, you’ll get an MOT certificate from the test centre and it will be recorded in the MOT database

If your vehicle fails the MOT, you’ll get a ‘refusal of an MOT test certificate’ from the test centre. This is also recorded in the MOT database. You can appeal the result if you think it’s wrong.


Driving a vehicle that’s failed its MOT

You can take your vehicle away if your previous MOT certificate is still valid. If your MOT has expired, you can drive your vehicle to either:

  • have the failed defects fixed
  • a pre-arranged MOT test appointment

In both cases, your vehicle still needs to meet the minimum standards of roadworthiness at all times or you can be fined. You can be fined up to £2,500, be banned from driving and get 3 penalty points for driving a vehicle in a dangerous condition.


Mileage readings on MOTs

The MOT certificate will show the mileage recorded at the current and previous three test passes. This is shown as the ‘odometer reading and history’.

Report any mistakes with the latest reading to the MOT centre within 7 days. They will give you a replacement certificate. Mistakes on an earlier mileage can’t be changed.
