Brayleys MOT


Following the latest government COVID-19 guidelines, we’ve reopened all of our dealerships. We’re implementing social distancing and safety measures in our Service Centres and showrooms to offer you the very best customer experience.

To safeguard Brayleys staff and customers, we’ll be opening by appointment only. If your car requires an MOT or service, we’re now taking bookings for MOT and servicing appointments after 1st June. Our Service Team is here to answer all your servicing questions and enquiries.

Look out for regular updates on our Facebook page and via our email newsletter (you can sign up for it here).

My MOT is due

The government has extended MOT due dates for cars and vans by six months. You don’t need to do anything, although you must keep your car safe to drive. If your tax is due, you can tax your car as soon as your MOT has been done. Here’s the official Government information

My MOT expired before 30 March 2020

You’ll find full MOT information on the government website here. You’ll need to book an MOT test as soon as possible. You shouldn’t drive your car without a valid MOT except if you’re going to an MOT appointment. Contact us to book your MOT appointment.

My first MOT is due

Your vehicle will automatically be given a six-month MOT exemption from the date its first MOT was due.

Booking your MOT

At present, you can arrange your MOT appointment online for after 1st June when we’re planning to reopen. Check the website for the latest reopening updates.


For new cars, you’ll need to get an MOT test done before the third anniversary of its registration. After that, your MOT needs renewing every 12 months. You can get a test done earlier than the due date, which will be valid for one year from that date. Not sure when your test is due? Contact Brayleys today.
