Whatever the time of year the knowledge that your precious motor is due for its MOT is often a cause for feeling glum. More expenditure. The question that needs to be asked though is, ‘should I feel this way’?
Instead of the big day being something to dread it should be something to value and, although you might not actually look forward to it, having a fresh MOT should be something to celebrate. Another year of trouble free motoring.
Introduced in 1960 and formally called the Ministry Of Transport Test, the MOT was initially only for vehicles over 10 years old. Those were the days! The problem was most cars were failing the test, sometimes appallingly, so the time limit had to be brought back and eventually it was applied to all cars older than 3 years.
Originally the test was a very basic check that covered the brakes, lights and steering but as the years moved on the MOT test has grown to encompass many different aspects of a cars upkeep and condition.
Even today, just because a car passes an MOT, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it is tip-top. It still needs to be serviced. A standard or premium car service need not cost the earth and it could incorporate the test at an MOT registered garage that offers both. It’s also handy if the selected garage also offers a MOT drop-in service.
The first reason to celebrate the MOT test is that once you leave the MOT test centre you know all the general safety aspects of the car are as good as they should be. This should be something every driver takes pride in.
Emission testing also has a part to play in the MOT test. It has big implications. It is not just to annoy and cost you. The test is geared to make sure your car is not polluting the environment more than it should. That’s a reason to be cheerful.
No one wants to have a crash but if it was a choice between saving some money each year while you take a gamble on how your car will cope in those dire circumstances or getting an MOT to make sure the car was good enough, most people would surely book their MOT pronto.
The Importance Of Servicing
An accident nearly always has two sides but these sides, more often than not, include 2 cars. What about when one side is a pedestrian? Having faulty brakes could mean the difference between avoiding hitting someone and potentially killing them.
Tyres also play a key part in a car stopping safely and handling correctly during evasive driving. The MOT test is there to make sure your car is not only as safe as possible for you and even other cars you may crash into, it is very much there to make sure pedestrians do not fall foul to faulty safety systems too. There’s just something about a set of new tyres that makes you smile.
The Big Day Comes
As with most things, there are good and bad ways to do an MOT. It is supposed to be a strict set of tests but ultimately car owners should expect more than just a test, they should expect experience, an eye for detail and a generally excellent service for the fee. That’s what you get from a registered MOT test centre.
The idea of getting a car to only just pass doesn’t really make much sense when you think of the implications of having a safety feature in a second rate condition. So when it comes time to book your MOT look for a well-reviewed and top quality garage. Be positive about your MOT and stay safe.
