VT20 MOT Certificates & MOT Insurance Explained

Years Before a MOT Certificate is Needed!

VT20 MOT Certificates - What the Ministry Of Transport say about the test -

"Your VT20 MOT certificate confirms that your vehicle, at the time of its test, without dismantling it, met the minimum acceptable environmental and road safety standards required by law. It doesn't mean the vehicle is roadworthy for the life of the certificate and isn't a substitute for regular maintenance."

You as VDOC manager must monitor ALL the Vehicles and Drivers on your companies or oranisations business on a regular basis to ensure that your Vehicles Duty of Care in this area does not catch you out!

N.B.

  • The Number of Years shown are for New Vehicles from The Date of First Registration.
  • The MOT is for 12 months from the 1st Required Date or end of the Previous MOT
  • Don't Allow Any Vehicle that needs a MOT Certificate on Business without one.
  • Failing MOT Insurance* will get you a Ticket. Good Records is the Best MOT Insurance!
