MOT Certificates and Failure notices will no longer be produced on pre-printed
coloured forms. Instead they will be printed directly on plain paper in black
The new look certificates will also combine the test result and advisory
information onto one page wherever possible.
Existing certificates will continue to remain acceptable and legal during
their validity period.
The new style certificate tells you that an MOT pass result has been
recorded on the database of MOT test results. Should you lose your certificate
you can check and verify your MOT history anytime at: www.direct.gov.uk/yourmotcheck.
