Preparing for your MOT

When your car goes in for an MOT test there are many parts of the vehicle that are checked to make sure it is roadworthy.
We have listed the main things to check to help you pass first time.

Lights

Lighting and signalling account for almost 30% of all MOT faults.

Before your MOT ask someone to walk around the vehicle while you operate the lights and signals from the driver’s seat, asking them if they all work and point in the right direction.

Also, Check the vehicle’s horn, battery, electrical wiring, and towbar.

Steering and suspension

Strength and condition of the steering wheel is a key fact.  Also check the suspension for corrosion, fractures, and distortion.

Brakes

Almost 10% of MOT fails are due to brakes.

Check the condition of the brakes, pedals, and levers, as well as any relevant warning lights.

Tyres

The legal limit is 1.6mm, and must not be below.

Tyres will also be examined for cuts in excess of 25mm, bulges, lumps, exposure of the cord and thread separation.

Seat belts

Make sure that all seat belts are working correctly including restraint systems.

Body and structure

First of all, does the Speedometer work? Also is the Vehicle Identification Number on permanent display?

Is there a registration plate fitted at the front and rear. Check they can be read from 20 meters away.

Emissions

While checking the fuel system for leaks, check to see if the fuel cap is fitted properly.

Also, the exhaust system will be inspected to ensure it is secure and for cracks.

Tip: Keep a look out for excessive blue or black smoke emitted from the exhaust, As this is likely to cause an MOT failure.

Windscreen

Another high on the list of fails.

MOT Halifax

On the windscreen directly in front of the driver, Make sure there is no damage or obstruction larger than 10mm. The area Outside the driver’s view (but within the swept area), there must not be any damage or other obstruction larger than 40mm.

Also, It’s a good idea to check the rear view mirror and wing mirrors to make they are secure and provide adequate views to the rear and side.

Tip: Check your wiper blades are in good working order and The screen wash is topped up.
