The Law requires that any motor vehicle that is driven on a road or public place has a valid MOT certificate. All motor vehicles over 3 years old from the date of the vehicle’s registration require a valid MOT certificate. If your vehicle’s MOT certificate has expired, you are permitted to drive the vehicle to the MOT testing station provided the MOT test is pre-booked and the distance is not unreasonable.
If you are found to be driving a motor vehicle without a valid MOT certificate, you will be liable to a fine of up to £1,000.
If there were particular reasons why you were driving a motor vehicle without a valid MOT certificate, then they may give rise to “Special Reasons”
If you face the charge of driving with no MOT and want to discuss your case, then please call Carl on 01482 227669 for a free initial consultation.
