DVSA MOT reminder service

Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency ( DVSA )

 

What a great idea.

Get a reminder, by email or text, a month before your vehicle MOT is due...

Check the MOT status & history of a vehicle

You can register several vehicles at the same address, and email

Very useful

Re: DVSA MOT reminder service

The service and MOT on my Zafira are due at the same time and I get reminders from the dealer as I have a service plan.

Likewise here from the non franchise garage even for my banger of 15 years.

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Re: DVSA MOT reminder service

Though of course, not everyone has their car serviced at a garage.

 

Some do it themselves, or have a friendly mechanic on call.

 

or delay servicing on a low mileage vehicle.

 

But they do need a current MOT certificate.

 

Better to have two reminders, than none at all.

Re: DVSA MOT reminder service

I prefer to set my own reminders anyway rather than rely on a third party.

 

Easy enough to set it up on my PC (I use Outlook 2007) then sync with my phone and tablet.

 For some reason I find that hard to believe happening to you.

But I can imagine...      "mot due? what am I doing with this "old banger" time to trade it in for a new one".Smiley

He probably has a reminder set to remind him of the reminder too.
