It is a legal requirement for all cars to have a valid MOT and tax, unless the vehicle is exempt. You can find more information on exemptions on the government website.
As part of MoneySuperMarket’s Car Monitor service, we’ll give you a heads up when your MOT, tax and insurance are due. You can add Car Monitor to your dashboard by selecting ‘Add Car Monitor’ and giving us your car registration and insurance end date. We get MOT and car tax expiration dates automatically from the DVLA. It can take up to 5 days for the DVLA to update the MOT database once you’ve had your MOT, but if it still hasn’t updated after 5 days you will need to contact the DVSA.
