    Mot on scooters

    Bought a scooter in may this year and im going to get it service int he new year - but i cant find an MOT certificate nor a log book /service book

    As it was a new scooter im thinking i wasnt supposed to get either - can someone confirm or deny - and also tell me how long before i need to do a mot on a new bike

    or is it not within the first 3 years a mot needs doing?>
