Quick MOT question


Recommended Posts

Just a quick one.

So, the bike is in for its MOT Morrow. Its gone in at the earliest possible time to preserve the MOT exp date. If it were to fail its MOT, am I allowed to ride it home due to it still being covered by the old MOT for another couple of weeks? That way, I can still get home, not have to leave it at a garage over easter weekend, and have enough time to fix it up. Or does it have to stay there?

Thanks folks.

While your current mot may cover you if it does fail its recorded as a fail and if you got pulled without doing anything about the failure you could actually find yourself in a bit of trouble!

Remember you must keep your vehicle roadworthy at ALL times not just at the time of mot

But yes you could ride it home you don't have to have an mot to ride it to and from a pre booked mot test
