MOT according to the latest standards
The MOT has undergone a significant overhaul in 2018 wherein many changes were made to the existing test structure. At FT Auto Centre in Kirton, we are well versed with these changes and perform the test accordingly.
Some of the new regulations that we adhere to during our MOT check in Kirton are listed below.
A. Changes in the category
MOT test results are now categorised under new sections namely –
- Dangerous: Severe threats and risks; should be repaired immediately at the test centre itself, if possible.
- Major: Poses serious risk; should be repaired immediately but you may take it to another garage for repair.
- Minor: Potential threats in the future; the vehicle passes the test but repairs recommended.
B. DPF guidelines for diesel vehicles
The new rules dictate that if the Diesel Particulate Filter is tampered with in any way or absent from a diesel car, it will fail its MOT.

Some new components have been added to the list of MOT check in the recent update. These include:
