Our latest research study is a real eye-opener. Kwik Fit research reveals that 3.4 million drivers (9%) were not aware that an MOT certificate was a legal requirement for cars over three years old in the UK.
Our findings also highlighted similarly widespread levels of ignorance with regards to other motoring obligations, with 9% of drivers admitting they didnít realise car insurance was compulsory and 10% saying the same about a valid tax disc.
We also questioned motorists about the need to service their car annually and found that a fifth (20%) incorrectly believed this was a legal obligation. A further 46% mistakenly thought that the law required them to carry a spare tyre in the UK and 18% incorrectly said the same about an emergency warning triangle.
Every year our expert technicians complete over 700,000 MOTs at over 500 centres nationwide. To help you prepare for your MOT we have created the following video to get you up to speed. Enjoy!
