The DVSA has now launched its new service where vehicle owners can sign up to get free reminders by text message or email when the vehicle’s MOT is due.
A reminder will be sent one month before the MOT is due and then another if the vehicle still has not been tested 2 weeks before the MOT is due.
There is a fine of up to £1,000 for driving a vehicle without a valid MOT.
In order to complete the online registration service, vehicles owners need the following information:
the vehicle’s number plate (registration number)
a mobile phone number or email address
Vehicle owners will have to unsubscribe to stop getting reminders for a vehicle if it has been:
- transferred to someone else
- scrapped or written-off
- registered as off the road
To unsubscribe from text reminders there will be the cost of a standard text message.
