Why is a motorbike MOT inspection important?
You’re legally required to have an annual MOT inspection if your motorbike is more than three years old in order to make sure that it is safe and in roadworthy condition. As part of your inspection, important components such as your brakes, tyres, and lights will be assessed by a qualified mechanic to check that they meet the required standards. Your motorbike’s engine, clutch, and gearbox aren’t checked as part of its MOT, making it important to service your vehicle on a regular basis as well.

Frequently Asked MOT questions in Ashford
How often do Motorbikes need an MOT?
Once your motorbike is over three years old, you will need to book in an MOT every 12 months to ensure it is safe and roadworthy.
What does a motorbike MOT consist of?
An MOT will check the key parts of your motorbike, including lights, steering and suspension, wheels and tyres, frame, braking, exhaust system, fuel system, seats, wheel alignment, sidecars (if applicable), horn, registration plates, drive chain and sprocket, throttle, clutch lever and footrests. It is important to remember that the engine, clutch and gearbox are not checked as part of an MOT, so you will need a full service to have these looked at.
What will fail a motorbike MOT?
If any of the previously mentioned parts are not performing correctly, they can put you at risk whilst on the road and therefore could cause you to fail your MOT. The most common reason for bikes to fail their MOT is lighting and signalling, often due to blown bulbs.
Can you MOT a motorbike early?
The earliest that you can MOT your motorbike is one calendar month before its previous MOT expires, however this will still preserve the original expiry date the next year when it is time to book your MOT again.
