After Your MOT

Once your car has passed its MOT, you might think you're set for another 12 months of worry-free motoring. Unfortunately, that's not always the case. Here are five reasons why.

  • An MOT is a visual inspection that simply confirms a car is safe and legal at the time it is tested. It doesn't mean the vehicle will stay in a roadworthy condition until the next MOT or that the car is mechanically safe.
  • Some items that are important for your safety and comfort, including the spare tyre, rear wiper, reversing light and heater or air-conditioning system, are not checked in the MOT.
  • A properly maintained car will not only use less fuel but faults will be found earlier, which means your car is less likely to break down.
  • If your car has a warranty, the ma nufacturer usually makes it a condition of the warranty that your car must be serviced. If you miss a service, the warranty may not be valid and any claim you make under it may be refused.
  • A service history is proven to add value to a car when you come to sell it. The first thing most buyers will look for is a set of stamps in the service manual.
