Frequently Asked Questions
Do electric cars need an MOT?
Yes, an electric car still needs to have an MOT after its 3rd birthday (the day the vehicle was registered, not collected, unless this was the same day) and then every year after that.
The main difference is the electric car won't have an emissions test, but everything else like brakes, suspension, lights, steering components and bearings will still be checked and your vehicle will either PASS or FAIL.
