A motorcycle MOT certificate confirms that at the time of the test, without dismantling, the vehicle met the minimum acceptable environmental and road safety standards required by law. It does not mean that the vehicle is roadworthy for the life of the certificate. The test does not cover the condition of the engine, clutch or gearbox.

 

How are vehicles tested?

Motorcycle MOT test stations have designated test bays where they conduct the test, using a range of specialised equipment.

The test procedures are laid out in a manual which the test station should make available to you if you want to look at it. If your vehicle has failed the test, you will be given a failure document with reference to this manual. You can watch the test from a designated viewing area but you are not allowed to interrupt the tester while he is working.

All Motorcycle MOT testers have been on a training course with the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) and their competence to test is checked regularly.
