Quite simply there are three possible outcomes – a pass or a fail, or a pass with advisories.

If you pass, we’ll give you a VT20 pass certificate. You don’t have to come back for another MOT test for a year. If you fail, we’ll hand you a VT30 failure certificate.

Whichever result you get, you’ll also receive an itemised breakdown of your MOT, showing areas where you passed, areas where there is cause for concern, and, in the case of a failure, what stopped your car from getting a pass.
