All vehicles registered on the Exchange must meet the minimum legal requirements to be on the roads. This includes having all vehicles taxed and covered by a valid Ministry of Transport (MOT) test.
The MOT test is an annual test for vehicle safety and roadworthiness that must be done every three years (four years in Northern Ireland). The purpose of this MOT test is to check that your vehicle meets road safety and environmental standards.
Cars over three years old are required by law to pass a yearly MOT test to prove they are roadworthy.
To find out if your vehicle has up-to-date vehicle tax or has been registered as off the road (SORN), enter your vehicle’s registration number here. Please keep in mind that it can take up to 5 working days for the records to update.
