Print your own MoT certificate, with new and free DVSA online service

Published 09 May 2019

Lost or damaged MoT certificates can now be replaced for free, thanks to new online service that's been launched by the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).

>>>Third of MoT failures could be prevented if drivers made basic checks

MoT centres issued over 630,000 replacement certificates in 2018, with car owners paying up to £10 for each copy. However, from today (9 May 2019), motorists can view, print and save any MoT certificate issued after 20 May 2018 by using the DVSA's free MoT replacement service

Vehicle owners will need their vehicle registration number (numberplate) and the 11-digit reference number from the vehicle’s log book (V5C) to use the service, which supplies MoT certificate copies for cars, vans and motorcycles. Copies for lorries, buses and coaches will be available later in 2019.

Motorists who want to get their replacement MoT certificate from their local centre can still do so, but at a cost of £10 per copy.  

Car owners can also keep track of  MoT dates, Road Tax renewal and Real MPG readings by using Honest John Homepages

As well as keeping your car's history in one place, Honest John Homepages provide easy access to owner reviews, garage reviews, and everything that you've asked through Ask Honest JohnCar Chooser results and valuations.
