What is a motorcycle MOT?
The MOT test checks that your vehicle meets road safety and environmental standards. You must get an MOT for your vehicle by either: the third anniversary of its registration. the anniversary of its last MOT, if it's over 3 years old. During the MOT, important parts on your vehicle will be checked to make sure they meet the legal standards. It isn’t the same as having your vehicle serviced and doesn’t check its general mechanical condition. The test doesn’t cover the condition of the engine, clutch or gearbox. You can watch the test from a viewing area.
The main areas which will be checked are lights, steering and suspension, wheels and tyres, frame, brakes, exhaust, fuel system, seats, horn, registration plate, chain and sprockets, throttle, clutch lever and foot rests. There are a few special rules for off road motorbikes and ones fitted with side cars. More information can be found on the Government MOT website.
What if your motorcycle fails the MOT test?
Not to worry, you will be given a failure sheet which details all the reasons for failure. You are free to take your motorcycle away and rectify the problems, if you bring it back within 10 days it will be re-tested for (most of the time) free. If you wish for Double Take Motorcycles to sort any of the failure points out then we will be happy to help.

Major and Interim services are critical to keep your motorcycle running safely and smoothly. An interim service will generally involve doing the oil, along with the air and oil filters, checking the spark plugs and tyre pressures, check all chassis bearings and chain and sprockets. Major services will include all the interim parts as well as replacing many of the standard consumable parts. Checking and adjusting valve clearances.
