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 service - cannot check MOT and mot history without original MOT certificate and even when I type in V5 reference no instead which I have it comes up with an error. Good idea but when you have idiots who devised the system it turns out to be pretty useless.
