by Central Point Mot Centre Welcome to Central Point MOT Centre, Coventry

In case your vehicle is more than 3 years old, and you are looking forward to a safe driving experience in the UK, passing an MOT in Coventry is mandatory. This test ensures that your vehicle is fit to hit the road as it meets all the pre-set safety standards.

Come 2018, and MOT tests came with new sets of rules. Under these new rules, any defects in a vehicle would be categorised into minor, major, or dangerous. Following this significant tweak in this test, 750,000 cars (2018) failed to clear it as compared to 350,000 in the last year (car exhaust issues only).

MOT test ahead of you? And the numbers who failed to clear it keep haunting you?

Well, check out these sure tips to get you sailing past MOT test in Coventry!

TIP 1: Look into the tread depth of your tyres

According to the UK Laws, tyre tread depth needs to be a minimum of 1.6 mm (experts advise the minimum tread depth of 3mm.) The tread design and depth ensure that a tyre and hence the vehicle provides an enhanced overall driving experience.

Ensure that your tyres are in the best possible state with a routine check-up. You can also seek out the advice of experts who can guide you about the scheduled time to replace your tyres. Tyre wear depends on the weather conditions that they susceptible to.

TIP 2: Check up on the condition of windscreen and wipers

According to experts from the best MOT garages like Central Point MOT, any windscreen chips of crack (in front of a driver) more than 1 cm in diameter is sure to fail an MOT test in Coventry. Wipers too need to be in top shape sans smears. Since they are easy to replace and inexpensive, it is better to go for a new one if needs be.

TIP 3: Check on the brake fluids

Make sure to look under the bonnet before an MOT test in Coventry. Check the master cylinder and make sure that the liquid in it stays between the markings of ‘max’ and ‘min’. In case the brake fluid has turned brown, it’s time for a flush and refill.

Also, make sure that there are no visible leaks in the brake pipe. Preferably go for ABS brakes since its warning light would tip you off about any leakage.

TIP 4: Look into the number plate of your vehicle

Take a glance at the registration plate of your car, and in case they look battered, make sure that you change it immediately. Passing an MOT check in Coventry also means your number plate must be fastened tightly to the car, and that the numbers are legible.

Do keep in mind this that any unusual state of your vehicle registration plate may hint at attempts to obstruct the law.

In case your vehicle fails to clear the MOT Test in Coventry, it receives a VT30 and would need to retake this test at the same test centre within the next 10 working days. The retest will be deemed possible only after the required repairs have been done.

Prepare in advance and avoid the entire fiasco of being declared not road worthy!
