MOT Failure in Ellesmere Port


MOT Failure Question

If car fails MOT is the old test certificate still valid until its expiry date

Well the answer does not seem to be found on any of the government information about the MOT test, so we emailed VOSA with this question and this is their response:

“An MOT certificate is valid until its expiry date. However if your vehicle fails a test before this date and you do not rectify the defects then you are driving an un-roadworthy vehicle which is an offence.

So to put this into context if your car fails the MOT due to illegal tyres then you are driving an un-roadworthy vehicle, you were driving un-roadworthy vehicle before the MOT, and you will be driving an un-roadworthy vehicle until you get a new tyre. Therefore at anytime if caught you would be subject to a £2500 fine and 3 points per illegal tyres

However once you get a new tyre your car is roadworthy and the old MOT is still valid until its expiry date, thus you can then drive your car again and get it retested to your timescale, with out worrying about driving without an MOT

This is a very good reason to book your Mot early and give yourself plenty of time to book a retest if needed.

Stranded in Chester


I was driving to Chester from Birkenhead when my car started to act up. Since we were arriving in Chester at 5PM on a Tuesday we thought for sure we wouldn’t find anyone who would be willing to look at, diagnose then fix our car by the time we had to leave the next day.

 

Ellesmere Port Engine Centre lived up to their name and really helped us out! We called at 5PM and they agreed to come and pick up the car. They promised to look at it first thing the next morning since they knew we had to get back to Birkenhead. One of the mechanics even gave my husband a ride back to our hotel out of kindness.

 

Ellesmere Port Engine Centre stayed true to their word and had our car fixed by noon the next day. They really saved the day and kept us from being stranded in Chester! I would recommend them to anyone. They were absolutely wonderful- oh, and the car is doing great now!”

“This is just to let you know how much I appreciate the great service Ellesmere Port Engine Centre provided me recently. We brought our car in with what we thought was an electrical problem. Come to find out it was a exhaust problem with the catalytic converter. On your own you checked with the Chevrolet dealership and found out it was still under warranty. Then you took the car over to the dealership and when they finished you went back over and picked it up. All in the same day. Now that’s great service. Not only did you save me a lot of money but you also saved me a lot of time. I really appreciate that kind of service. Customer for Life.
