First MoT

Post by paulJ » Tue Jul 10, 2018 12:50 am

Good morning, just to say that my E (2015 Design 1.4 easytronic) had its first MoT last week. I took it to the same independent as I went to in my Corsa C days after the usual preparations (new engine oil & filter, air filter, wiper blades, replace brake fluid, inspect road springs / anti-roll bar links / driveshaft boots, check washer bottle, check tyres and lights, clean inside and out, etc). The date of purchase was 31-7-15, Mot issued on 4-7-18 and valid till 30-7-19. In other words, the 28 days grace period applies to the first MoT: no need to leave it till the last minute, put it in up to four weeks beforehand and you obtain an MoT valid until three years of the purchase date. Moving on: only three weeks of warranty left, then I'll be looking into disabling the annoying stop-start forever and fitting a gearbox drain plug. Will post as and when these desirable aims are achieved.

Now I know you can get 13 months M.O.T but three years is stretching it

Remember if it fails that's that...you don't get the time it was meant to run to..

It would be valid until 4 years after the purchase date. Think about it.
