MOT Due Date Checker
Christmas is around the corner, and it’s a busy time of year for all of us. Right now, the last thing on your mind is getting an MOT for the car. After all, it’s not due until next month is it? Losing track of your MOT due date is easily done, but forgetting can also lead to legal fines and penalties. With Mr Clutch Autocentres and our new MOT Due Date Checker, you’ll be back on top of things in no time.
What is an MOT?
This is an annual safety check for your vehicle, and it is where dozens of tests are performed on your car to determine its safety, roadworthiness, and exhaust emissions. The key components get checked over, from the brakes to the tyres, and you will be told which aspects passed or failed the test to meet legal standards.
As MOTs are a legal requirement, you need to get them done annually and ensure that your car passes the test. If they fail, you will need to have the necessary repairs done and then go through an MOT retest. It is not to be confused with a service, which involves things like oil and filter changes, as well as general maintenance to the car.
What is the MOT Checker?
Recently, we launched the MOT Due Date Checker on our website. You can use our handy tool to check when your MOT is due so that you can book it in with plenty of time to spare. The best part is that you can also fill in your details and sign up for reminders via post or email so that you never forget your MOT again. The reminders may even contain some exclusive offers and discounts that you won’t want to miss out on. You can also select your preferred branch so that they are easy to get hold of when you are ready to book an appointment.
Why is an MOT Important?
First and foremost, it is against the law to neglect getting an MOT. Driving without one can lead to penalties and fines if (and when) you get caught. More than that, it is also dangerous not to have one. The MOT process checks over your car, ensuring things are in safe and working order.
Without one, you could end up driving with faulty brakes and find yourself unable to stop. It is done for your safety, and that of the road users around you. Having an in-date certificate shows that your vehicle has passed the minimum safety standards set by the government so that you can drive safely.
