MOT Testing For Motorcycles

The MOT scheme is primarily a road safety measure designed to ensure as far as possible that all vehicles be it Car, Motorcycles and light goods vehicle more than 3 years old meet minimum safety standards.

At least once a year your vehicle will be examined at an authorised MOT station to make sure that it complies with certain important requirements of the law.

The test certificate and examination however, only relate to the condition of the testable items at the time of the test and should not be regarded as evidence of their condition at any other time, nor should it be accepted as evidence of the general mechanical condition of the vehicle.

An MOT Certificate confirms that at the time of the test, without dismantling, the vehicle met the minimum acceptable environmental and road safety standards required by law. It does not mean that the vehicle is roadworthy for the life of the certificate. The test does not cover the condition of the engine, clutch or gearbox.
