You can check the current MOT status of any vehicle online. This might be one that you own already or a second hand vehicle that you are thinking of buying.
The online MOT status check gives you information about:
the date of the last test
mileage on the vehicle at the time of the test
the expiry date of the test
You can compare the online information against the paper certificate to make sure it’s genuine.
To find out details of previous MOT tests on a vehicle you can do an online MOT history check.
You can only look up information online going back to 2005 when the MOT Scheme was computerised.
The MOT history check will give you the following information:
full test details
mileage at the time of each test
i have used this service and is great when you turn up knowing all the old history
