Replace a lost or damaged MOT certificate

You can get a replacement MOT certificate online if you’ve lost or damaged the original. This service is free.

You’ll need:

  • the vehicle registration (number plate)
  • the 11-digit number from the vehicle log book (V5C)

You cannot use this service for heavy goods vehicles (HGVs), trailers or public service vehicles (PSVs). Instead, fill in a document replacement form for HGVs and trailers (VTG59) or a document replacement form for PSVs (VTP6).

Other ways to apply

You can also ask for a replacement certificate in person from any MOT centre. It does not have to be the centre that did the original MOT.

You’ll need to bring the vehicle registration (number plate) and log book (V5C) reference number. The centre can charge you up to £10.
