The Ministry of Transport test, or MOT test, recently celebrated its 60th anniversary. And while there are plenty of people who feel yet another level of bureaucracy is nothing to celebrate, this test has likely saved a lot of lives by getting countless death traps off the road. It began as a voluntary test, but to the surprise of no one, compliance was extremely low. As such, it wasn’t long before the test was made compulsory with new items being added to the test list over the years, including tyres in 1968 and emissions in 1991. Today’s MOT test looks at 17 different components of a car. If a component fails it must be repaired before the car can be issued an MOT certificate.
People are often reluctant to bring their car into a garage for an MOT test. They fear the mechanic will try and take advantage of them by claiming the car needs repairs when it doesn’t.
