Replace a lost or damaged MOT certificate

You can get a replacement MOT certificate from any MOT centre if you’ve lost or damaged the original.

How to get a replacement

  1. Contact an MOT centre - it doesn’t have to be the one that did the MOT.

  2. Give them the vehicle registration (number plate) and log book (V5C) reference number.

  3. The MOT centre will give you a replacement certificate.

You can’t apply for a replacement online.

How much it costs

The MOT centre can charge you £10 or half the full MOT test fee - whichever is the lower amount.

The fee is different for heavy goods vehicles and public service vehicles.
