    MOTs and car accidents


    When you’re out and about on the road, it is always good to know that the vehicle that you are driving meets the legal safety requirements. To reduce the risk of road-related accidents, it is now law for all cars over three years old to undergo a full MOT in order to obtain insurance and to legally be allowed on the road.

    Eliminating the risk of a road traffic accident: MOT

    It goes without saying that a car that has passed an MOT is more less likely to cause problems for both the driver, their passengers and also other road users.

    An MOT tests the fundamentals of the car to ensure the health and safety of both you and others on the road. They feature tests to check the capability of your brakes, steering, speedometer and your tyres. MOTs provide peace of mind that your car is functioning as it should and that you will be as safe as possible while using it.

    Road accidents do happen

    Even when your MOT is up to date there is always a risk of a road traffic accident occurring. Whether due to the weather, inability to preempt another driver’s decision or a simple human error, car collisions do occur.

    In such cases, it is likely that either yourself or the other affected party may want to claim compensation if they have sustained an injury. An MOT guarantees that your car insurance is valid should the worst case scenario occur and you are required to provide a pay-out.
