How to Avoid Failing your MOT

The key way to prepare for an MOT to avoid failing are the following. Check the lightbulbs and signals, 30% of all faults on MOT’s are due to faults lights and signals. Check your tyre tread, the easiest way to check this is to do the 20p test. The 20p test is done by placing a 20p coin in the tread and if the outer band of the 20p is visible then as a rule of thumb the tyre needs replacing. Checking your wipers are in good condition and that your washing fluid is topped up is vital and something that is often overlooked and easy to check. The third biggest cause of faults on an MOT is obstructions to the “drivers view on the road” this is can be avoided by removing sat navs and anything hanging from the rearview mirror. Also if there is any cracks or chips in certain zones of the windscreen from the point of view of the driver.
