Sep 2011

If you know it's when it's 3 years old why do you think its next year?

Your first MOT will be required on or before the third anniversary of it's registration, or first use (if imported). So, if it was registered new when you bought it - Sept this year.

I would say it would run out September 2011
Sep 08 - Sept 09 = 1st Year
Sep 09 - Sept 10 = 2nd Year
Sep 10 - Sept 11 = 3rd Year

2008 + 3 = 2011

Hardly rocket science...

i know 2008 + 3 years is 2011 but i thought the first mot would be 2009 2nd mot 2010 3rd mot 2011 so say if they were the 3 freeones then the first one we do would be 2012.

It isnt "3 Free MOT's" is it, your not actually getting your car tested in that time are you.

But there was no logic in what you meant.

I see the logic, she thought the first 3 were given so the first actual test would be the 4th.
