Road Tax (VED)
The UK road tax was first introduced in 1888 and is officially known as Vehicle Excise Duty (VED).
It is applied to vehicles in a series of bands and is mandatory for the majority of UK vehicles using the road network. If a car is not using the UK road network a Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN) must be registered for the vehicle.
First introduced in 1960 , the Ministry of Transport test (MOT) is an annual inspection which evaluates the safety and general 'road worthiness' of most vehicles over 3 years old.
The test currently involves many aspects of a vehicles components including lighting, steering, seat belts, tyres / wheels, exhaust emissions, etc.
Check our MOT FAQ for more information.
Our free service includes an automated MOT reminder service.
Unlike some countries, the legal requirement in the UK is for the driver of the vehicle to be insured, not the actual vehicle itself.
Vehicle insurance is a legal requirement to take a vehicle on the UK road network. The minimum level of cover required is 'third party', which covers for damage caused to another’s person, vehicle, animal or property.
Also know as a vehicles 'annual service', there is no legal requirement to perform annual maintenance to a vehicle, although it is highly recommended in order to help maintain safety and reliability.
Maintenance will often include changing the vehicles engine oil, oil filer, air filter, cabin filters and various other checks such as tyre and brake wear, etc.
