If your Land Rover is 3 years or older you are required by law to have an annual safety check known as the MoT test. The purpose of the MoT test is to ensure the vehicle meets the minimum safety level required by law. The Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) is responsible for ‘licensing’ both the MoT test station and the MoT tester. Once you have booked your vehicle in for its MoT, remember to bring your Vehicle Registration Document – often referred to as the ‘V5’ document.
You can book a Land Rover MOT up to 28 days in advance of its due date
During the MoT the tester, a person authorised by the government body called VOSA (Vehicle and Operator Services Agency) will conduct an inspection and a comprehensive series of checks around the vehicle, including the interior, exterior, under the bonnet and under the vehicle. The result of each check is recorded- if the vehicle passes a ‘pass’ certificate is issued. If the vehicle fails to meet the required standard a ‘failure’ document is issued. Items that are not quite a failure, but worthy of a mention to you so you can keep an eye on them are drawn to your attention as ‘advisory’ items.
If the vehicle fails its MOT, it does not meet legal requirements and must be repaired to comply with MOT Test standards. The notes on the back of the report your Nominated Tester gives you will help you. It is your responsibility to ensure your vehicle is examined every 12 months. Without a current MoT certificate, you will be unable to drive your vehicle lawfully or renew your road fund license
The penalty for not having an up to date MoT certificate could be a fine. Also if the vehicle is involved in an accident you may be asked to produce your MoT certificate. An insurance claim could be affected by the absence of your MoT, especially in the case of injury.
