The Penalty for driving without MOT



The penalty for driving without an MOT is not generally too severe if dealt with swiftly. No points are issued on a drivers licence although a fine is imposed by court of up to a maximum of 1000.

A fixed penalty notice is usually the method dealt with by police which costs the driver 100. Failure to pay, or repeat offenders will receive a court summons where the fine will escalate and will include court costs.

Having a valid MOT test certificate doesn't necessarily mean the vehicle is road worthy. Using a vehicle in a dangerous condition, for example defective brakes, illegal tyres, defective steering, can land a driver with significantly higher fines and points on their licence. The maximum fines imposed are:
  • LGV 5000
  • PCV 5000
  • Other vehicles including cars 2500

3 penalty points for each offence, for example 3 points for defective brakes, 3 points per illegal tyre, 3 penalty points for defective steering are placed on the drivers licence.

Other than the initial fine and court costs, the financial burden is increased for a further 4 years - the duration in which the penalty point last on a drivers licence. If fortunate not to lose the licence due to exceeding 12 penalty points, the added points will certainly increase vehicle insurance premiums.
