An MOT garage will check a number of things when carrying out an MOT, including:
- Lights to check their colour, condition, safety and aim are all correct
- Steering and suspension to see if they're operating as normal and in good condition
- Brakes to make sure they’re functioning safely
- Wheels and tyres to ensure general condition, security and tread depth of your tyres aren't worn to the point of being dangerous
- Vehicle emissions will be tested to make sure they fall within safety guidelines
