MOT

Walkers Tyres Leicester is an authorised MOT test centre and can carry out an MOT test on your vehicle. Your vehicle must be in a ‘roadworthy’ condition and it is the law that every vehicle over the age of 3 years old has a valid MOT. It is a legal requirement that your vehicle must be tested on an annual basis.

When does a car require an MOT?

The first MOT on a car should take place when the vehicle is 3 years old – please note that this could be different if this has 8 seats or more and/or is a taxi. An MOT tests the important elements of your vehicle to ensure they meet the minimum legal requirements, you should continue to make sure that your car maintains this standard as a minimum at all times.
