A common misconception is that once you achieve a MOT certificate, it automatically means that your car is fool proof for 365 days. This is a very wrong direction because when the test is performed, the experts monitor the current state of affairs with your car. What you do with your vehicle for the rest of the year, is another story. If you ignore regular maintenance, your car will still not be safe to drive.
The whole experience
In all honesty, MOT doesn’t have to be a painful or anxiety filled experience. If you have done your research and chosen the right type of garage to do the job – it can be seamless. London is a hub for tyre garages offering this service. But one reliable place to book your MOT in London is from Iverson Tyres (020 8566 4666). There is no waiting time involved because you can book a time slot and date from the website. From a general standpoint, it is important that you choose a tyre shop where all safety protocols are met.

What happens if you just don’t get your MOT
The answer is fairly simple – you don’t get to drive your car! If you lose this certificate or you do not have proper MOT certification then, you can go through heavy fines that can reach up to 2500 pounds. Hence better safe than sorry! Get your MOT certification as soon as you can to have a hassle free and safe drive in the UK.
