A Breif History Of The MOT Test

Complsory vehicle testing was introduced in the UK in 1960 when the motor vehicle (Tests) regulations 1960 came into operation. The test was initially confined to vehicles that were ten years old or more, but the testable age was progressively reduced to three years by 1967. In 1968 a tyre check was introduced, and in 1969 a check for the presence of legally required seat belts. In 1977 a check of front screen/washers/wipers, indicators, stop lights, horn, exhaust and the vehicle structure were all introduced. In 1991 a check of the petrol exhaust emissions and the ABS braking system were introduced. The MOT test has become more involved as motor vehicles have become more technical and is updated on a regular basis.
