It’s illegal to drive your vehicle on public roads without a valid MOT certificate. If you find out that your MOT test has expired you must book a test as soon as possible.

Although you cannot legally drive a vehicle without a valid MOT you are permitted to drive to the test centre where your test is booked.

How early can you get an MOT?

MOT certificates are valid for a year and the expiry date is shown on your MOT pass certificate.

You can MOT a vehicle up to a month (minus one day) before the expiry date and retain the same renewal date. ie. If your MOT runs out on the 3rd March the earliest you can have an MOT is from the 4th February.
