Buying a car is a big financial commitment. If it's had previous owners, it's important you know what you're getting yourself into. The quickest and most efficient way to do this is by an MOT check history search on the gov.uk site. This will give you a comprehensive history on the vehicle and how it fared during previous MOT tests.
The MOT check history search will tell you:
The government site is comprehensive and has details of the post 2005 MOT history for all vehicles in England, Scotland and Wales.
You you start an MOT check history search, make sure you have the car's registration details handy. Test results are available to view as soon as the garage posts them online.
In the UK, once a car reaches three years old, it will need to have an MOT test on an annual basis. The point of this is to make sure it's safe, roadworthy and keeping in line with emissions legislation.
