Do It Online Check MOT Status and History

It is easy to check a vehicle's MOT status and history online.

Do It Online  Check MOT Status and History
It is easy to check a vehicle's MOT status and history online. This is worthwhile if you are considering buying a particular machine. The online service enables you to confirm whether its certificate is legal, whether it passed first time, and whether the test highlighted any 'advisory' repairs. It is possible to view this information historically too, helping create an overview of the vehicle's previous reliability and likely future costs. For example, 'advisory' work on the brakes and suspension suggests large bills are imminent.

To access the MOT database visit www.direct.gov.uk. Continue by selecting 'motoring', then 'MOT', then 'check your vehicle's MOT status and history online'. Simply enter the vehicle's registration number and the MOT certificate test number. This can be found on either the VT20 pass certificate or the VT30 refusal document. If these are unavailable try the reference number on the V5C registration certificate (log book).

Useless, I want to check by the reg number only. The garage doesnt have the MOT or V5.

What's the point asking for the mot certificate ref number when all you want to know is has it got an mot or when is it due. If you've got the certificate for the number you will have the info. Useless!
