MOT is very import for car maintenance which should be done annually. Initially when MOT was introduced in Great Britain in 1960 under the direction of ministry of transport it was very basic test like brakes, lights and steering check which was to be carried out after the vehicle was ten years old and every year thereafter.
Barking MOT Centre is regulated and licensed by the Department and Transport and DVSA, and the individual testers carrying out the inspections are also trained and certified. The decision to pass or fail each presented vehicle comes down to the discretion of the tester following the guidelines issued by the DVSA.

The MOT test covers the following aspects:

• Lighting and signalling equipment
• Steering (including suspension)
• Brakes
• Tyres and wheels
• Seat belts
• Body, structure and general items. Includes body and components such as spoilers, bumpers and mirror housings.
