How often do I need to MOT my Ford?
Vehicles that are three years old or more are required to have an MOT test once every 12 months. You will not legally be allowed to drive unless you have a valid MOT certificate. If you have a new Ford and you are unsure when your MOT is due, the time of registration date will provide you with the date at which it needs its first MOT.
When your Ford needs its first MOT
Your Ford will need to undergo a series of tests to check that its vital components meet the legal standards for your safety. You can choose to keep your MOT expiry date the same by getting an MOT up to a day before it is due. Or, you can get your MOT test up to 30 days before your current MOT certificate is due to expire.
As the driver, it is your responsibility to ensure that your Ford receives an MOT test by a trained professional on an annual basis. If you fail to get an MOT, you could face a fine of up to £1,000 and your insurance will become invalid. It is illegal to drive without an MOT and car insurance.
How long does an MOT take?
Getting your Ford MOT test can take between 45 and 60 minutes to complete, but it is better to allow for a full hour before you collect your vehicle. However, there are a few things you should consider when booking your MOT:
- Make sure you allow time for repairs just in case your Ford were to fail its MOT
- The test centre has a legal obligation to prevent you from driving away in your Ford if it does not have a valid MOT certificate
- Some test centres may ask you to drop off your Ford first thing in the morning, just in case it needs repairs
- It is better to plan to be without your vehicle for an entire day
How much does a Ford MOT cost?
Here at Think Ford, you can get your Ford MOT for £54.85. Should your vehicle need any remedial work, our Ford specialist technicians will talk you through any repairs that may need doing. Leave your Ford in our capable hands and we will make sure it provides peak performance with every drive.
