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 vehicles running around. 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 test has evolved and in 1967 the Mot test became an annual occurrence for cars when they now reach just three years old.

The Mot examination takes approximately one hour and includes an emission test (first introduced in 1992) the steering, brakes, lights, wheels and tyres, corrosion and other safety related matters. The Mot test is a minimum observational test and does not guarantee the roadworthiness of the tested vehicle. The test is a matter of interpretation and causes confusion with the consumer as opinions can differ from Mot station, to station.
