Make a note of when the next MOT is due on your vehicle, because you will not receive a reminder and it is easy to forget!

The Police now use Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR), the system exchanges data with the DVLA database which keeps a record of all vehicles with and without a current MOT.

If you are found to be parking or driving on the road without valid MOT this may result in the vehicle being either clamped or impounded and you will also be given an automatic Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN).
