Driving a Vehicle that has failed its Mot
Posted: December 05th 2018
You can take your vehicle away if:
- Your current MOT certificate is still valid
- No ‘dangerous’ problems were listed in the MOT
Otherwise, you’ll need to get it repaired before you can drive.
If you can take your vehicle away, it must still meet the minimum standards of roadworthiness at all times.
You can be fined up to £2,500, be banned from driving and get 3 penalty points for driving a vehicle that has failed its MOT because of a ‘dangerous’ problem.
