Motorcycle  MOT Test in Ellesmere Port

Just like every car, every motorcycle needs to have an MOT test every year once it reaches three years of age. It is then possible to renew your MOT annually up to a calendar month before its expiry date. The earliest that you can have your bike Class 1 MOT tested if you want to add on the remaining time before expiry is printed on your pass certificate.

What is involved in a Motorcycle  MOT Test?

A class 1 MOT test is for motorcycles and motor scooters up to 200 CC. The annual test comprises of a thorough check of the essential components that keep your motorcycle in a roadworthy condition. If your vehicle fails the MOT checklist then it is deemed to be unsafe to be ridden on public roads (either for you as a rider, or to other road users).

What parts of the motorcycle are checked?

In the MOT, many parts of your bike are checked including its:

  • Brakes
  • Wheels and tyres
  • Steering and suspension
  • Horn
  • Exhaust system
  • Frame
  • Throttle
  • Drive chain and sprocket
