Jaguar MOT Frequently asked questions
Your questions, answered
When does my Jaguar need its first MOT?
How often do I need to MOT my car?
Once your Jaguar has had its first MOT, it will need one on an annual basis. This is to check it’s been passed as being of roadworthy condition, and to preserve your Jaguar MOT insurance. The date of your MOT every year will be 12 months from the previous test, though you have the choice of booking it up to a month – minus a day – before the anniversary date.
How much does a Jaguar MOT cost?
A Jaguar MOT with Dick Lovett costs £54.85, and all work is carried out by Jaguar approved technicians. The price includes a vehicle health check too, and when all is complete your Jaguar will be returned to you looking clean and smelling fresh as we’ll give it a wash and vacuum.
What if my car fails its MOT?
During an MOT, any defects or faults discovered with your vehicle will be categorised as either minor, major or dangerous. A major or dangerous fault will result in your car failing its MOT; minor faults won’t mean your car fails, but these will be recorded on your pass certificate and it’s your responsibility to monitor these and get them repaired. These are typically known as ‘advisories’.
If your car fails its MOT, you shouldn’t drive it. You could 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.
If it’s failed with major faults, these need to be repaired before you can drive it again, though you are able to use your vehicle to drive to a garage for those repairs. You can also drive your car if you’ve had the MOT early and your current certificate is still valid – but you’ll need to get those repairs done, and re-tested, to get a new certificate.
If your car has failed its MOT because of dangerous problems, it can’t be driven at all until repairs are made. When your current MOT certificate has expired, you will need a new one to be able to continue to drive your car. It won’t be deemed legal and roadworthy until it passes.
