    First MOT

    First MOT 9th Oct 17 at 8:12 AM
    My car will be 3 years old on 4th December and therefore due its first MOT. If I get it MOT'd a couple of weeks early is it the same principal as having an existing MOT, i.e. preserving the expiry date of the existing MOT and it would therefore be MOT'd to 4/12/2018?


    Thanks

    I don't think there's any difference with the first mot. Check when booking.

    Always worth getting the first one done early so it's still covered by the 3 year warranty if anything significant is found.
