An MOT is a minimum requirement, which is why we educate our customers that an annual MOT test does not mean your vehicle is being maintained as a result, this is only checking your vehicle is SAFE for use, a service will keep your engine healthy and check for any potential underlying issues the vehicle may have. An MOT cannot cover all basis that a service can.

Word of advise: Never buy a new car assuming it is sound just because it has an MOT. Remember this is a MINIMUM standard.
