Introduced in the 1960s, an MOT test is a legal provision applicable to all vehicles which are over 3 years old. The tests are conducted under the aegis of the DVSA, and there are more than 23,000 authorised MOT testing centres in the United Kingdom.

The DVSA has detailed guidelines which categorise vehicles according to load-bearing capacity, seating capacity and other criteria.

Let us now delve a bit deeper into the MOT test itself.
When it was first conceptualised, the test only had a few simple checks and inspections. Now, however, an MOT check Scunthorpe is a highly specialised series of inspections and detailed analyses of a vehicle’s various parts.
Broadly, an MOT in Scunthorpe inspects the following components:
Our MOT Scunthorpe also covers the condition of the vehicles’ horns, number plates, reflective surfaces and bonnet.
In case your car has failed its MOT, you have probably been made aware of the VT30 certificate that details the reasons behind the failure. Following the 2018 update, MOT checks are now much more stringent, and your vehicle will fail the test if it has a “dangerous” or “major” fault.
However, you can take a re-test within 10 working days of failing the check. To ensure that your vehicle aces the re-test, you have to get all faults professionally repaired first. Here at Lou’s Tyres Limited we can certainly help you with any repairs as well.
Why not combine your vehicle’s next MOT test with a vehicle service or a short Pre-MOT-Check? During such a check, our technicians will have a good look at your vehicle and also check MOT history, previous advisory notes etc.* and conduct all essential repairs and replacements so that your vehicle passes the test without any hassle.
*Also, please note what these MOT qualifying terms mean:
MOT's at Lous Tyres can be carried out 28 days earlier than your MOT anniversary date, and if your vehicle passes the extra 28 days is added to your next 12 months MOT duration.
