MOT & MOT Protect.
Due to the current COVID-19 situation, the government has announced an automatic six month extension on MOTs due from 30 March 2020. For further information, please refer to the UK Government guidance on MOTs due from 30 March 2020.
It’s worth noting that MOT expiry dates before 30 March 2020 remain in force. For further information, please refer to the UK Government guidance for MOTs due before 30 March 2020.
A limited number of BMW Centres remain open offering service and repairs to make sure essential and key workers and the emergency services can stay mobile. Please check availability with your local BMW Centre via telephone or on their website.
If your BMW is over three years old, it now requires an annual MOT inspection. It's a standard inspection of over 150 safety-related and emission systems, including lights, steering, brakes and suspension. And thanks to BMW's engineering standards, passing should be a formality. But there's always a chance that something could have been damaged without you realising it.
The official MOT test is a useful annual safety check - and we are the ideal people to take care of the test and any required repair work. We have specialised BMW training and only use Genuine BMW Parts to replace like-for-like, if necessary.
Once your vehicle has passed, you will receive the official VT20 certificate which is your receipt for the MOT test and shows the information that will be held on the MOT database. If your vehicle should require any recommended additional work this will be listed on the advisory notice of the VT32 document.
BMW MOT Protect is now included on all BMW models so, in the unlikely event that your BMW fails its first MOT test, replacement parts and labour are covered on a long list of key items from electrical and lighting equipment to steering and suspension. Any issues will be addressed promptly and completely free of charge so you can land your MOT certificate with the minimum of fuss.
What’s more, since January 1st 2013, BMW models registered with our Service Inclusive or Service Inclusive Plus packages now benefit from an extended MOT Protect cover level. This enhancement extends the same cover level of MOT Protect to both the 2nd and 3rd MOT also.
Terms and Conditions
MOT Protect cover will rectify any technical issues described here after that cause the vehicle to fail its second and third MOT which will be due no later than 48 and 60 months from the date of first registration.
