Earliest Date to get MOT
Once a vehicle passes an MOT it stays valid for one full year (12 months from the testing date). The current test pass certificate will show the date when it runs out and becomes invalid.
In fact, you can MOT a vehicle up to one (1) month (minus one day) before it is due to run out. Doing so will not affect the existing renewal date.
