2022 MOT Test Certificate

With 2022 kicking off to a fresh start, it’s important to know when your 2022 MOT Test is due. To find the details, you can either double check last year’s paperwork, use the government website to check your MOT status or if your vehicle has previously been tested through Stourbridge Automotive, then you’re welcome to contact us.

A 2022 MOT Test is essential

Without a 2022 MOT Test, it is illegal to drive your vehicle as it is automatically deemed not road worthy if you miss the date. Should you get caught driving the car without a valid MOT, you could face a fine of up to £1000. This means that it’s important to check that your AudiBMWMINI, Mercedes JaguarLand Rover or Range Rover, is booked in for a 2002 MOT Test, well within the due date.

Please note:

  • A MOT Test usually takes up to 1 hour to carry out
  • Owner / drivers should book their vehicle into a UK Government Registered valid test centre like Stourbridge Automotive.
  • If a car fails a MOT Test, drivers aren’t allowed to drive the car away, and until the problems are fixed. Though, you still have a valid certificate you could be breaking the law by using a vehicle with a known fault on the road. Therefore, it is highly recommended to get the repairs fixed as soon as possible and not to drive the vehicle in the meantime.

If your car fails its MOT on the same day as the MOT expires, it may still be driven – but only for the following reasons:

  • You are taking your vehicle to a garage to be fixed
  • You are taking your vehicle to a pre-arranged MOT test appointment
