A MOT is a means of testing a vehicle and its features for safety. A MOT doesn't provide a guarantee that a car will be safe to drive for the next 12 months. But what it does do is provide a review of four significant safety systems: brakes, steering, suspension and tyres. If, during the MOT these areas do not meet the standards set then the car will fail the MOT.
