SO EXACTLY WHAT IS CHECKED DURING AN MOT ?
Why checks are carried during an MOT Test?
All vehicles that go on the road must be kept and maintained to a level set by the governing body VOSA (Now DVSA).
When an MOT is carried out certain checks have to be made to make sure that the minimum standards are met. A vehicle does not require an MOT for the first three years, and there are also different rules if the vehicle is being use as a licensed minicab or taxi.
What does a MOT certificate mean?
A MOT certificate is a snap shot in time and indicates the condition of the vehicle at the time MOT test was done on the vehicle.
It confirms that the vehicle has met the minimum acceptable environmental and road safety standards required by law.
So Exactly what is Checked during an MOT?

Vehicle structure and body shell are checked during the MOT test for excessive corrosion or damage in specific areas of the vehicle. Any sharp edge can result in a MOT failure.
The MOT tester will check that the doors open and close correctly and that the latch is secure in a closed position. Front doors should open from both the inside and outside of the vehicle. Rear doors may need to be opened to gain access to testable items like rear seatbelts.
