Forgetting could cost you a £1,000 fine
Did you know, you can request a free email reminder every year before your next MOT is due? Simply visit the government’s website and sign up for reminders – you’ll just need to give an email address and the registration number of a vehicle.
You’ll need to activate the reminder service via a link which you’ll be emailed after signing up. You’ll then get the reminder a month before your MOT’s due and again two weeks later if you still haven’t had your MOT.
With fines of up to £1,000 for not having a valid MOT, forgetting could prove costly, so this free reminder should be a no-brainer for anyone who has a tendency to forget about these things.
You can unsubscribe from the reminders service at any time.
For some, it might be useful to get someone else’s MOT reminders – eg, for an elderly or vulnerable relative – and you can do this by simply entering their registration number with your email address.
