Before you start
You’ll need the vehicle registration mark and either:
- the MOT test number (you can get this from the VT20 test certificate or the VT30 refusal certificate)
- the document reference number from the V5C registration certificate (logbook) if you don’t have the MOT test number
Test history records start from 2005.
Check the MOT date by registration number and make
Use the vehicle enquiry service to find the MOT expiry date if you’ve only got the registration and make of a vehicle.
If your car is new, you must get an MOT test by the third anniversary of its registration.
Check if an MOT certificate is genuine
You can check if your MOT certificate is genuine by checking its details against what’s recorded online.
