In 1960, the then minister of transport Ernest Marples introduced what was originally called the “Ten year test” . Following the end of the second world war he decided that there were too many old and unreliable vehicles on the road. The test was aimed at vehicles once they reached ten years old. The aim was to check the brakes, steering and lights. Since that time the Mot check has evolved and in 1967 the test became an annual inspection for passenger cars when they now reach just three years old.

The examination takes approximately one hour. The checks include an emission test (first introduced in 1992) the steering, brakes, lights, wheels and tyres, corrosion and other safety related matters. The Mot check is a minimum observational test. Upon completion and successful pass, it still does not guarantee the roadworthiness of the tested vehicle. The test is a matter of interpretation and this often causes confusion with the consumer as opinions do differ from station to station.
