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).

I can understand the need for proof of ownership of someone tries to make any changes to the vehicles status, but when it is to check AND ONLY CHECK the Mot of a vehicle it seems rather pointless. People need to check the Mot is genuine before buying a vehicle and also when hiring/borrowing/using a company vehicle. On these situations we don't have access to documents. We are the vulnerable ones, yet you protect the crooks and fraudsters! Please review your requirements

I never see the MOT certificate or logbook for my works van. I only know the registration number. The DRIVER is supposed to be responsible for checking the MOT is valid, but your web site cannot be used without information that is not available to me. Why cannoy you supply MOT expiry date with just the reg. number?
