Check your MoT cer­tifi­cate on­line

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week - www.check-mot.ser­vice. gov.uk

Own­ers of Stan­dards, Al­lards, Cross­leys and other mar­ques pre­vi­ously not listed with the DVLA can now check MoT cer­tifi­cates on­line. And just in time too; as the Driver and Ve­hi­cle Stan­dards Agency (DVSA) is urg­ing clas­sic own­ers to check MoT de­tails on­line after ad­mit­ting that the pa­per ver­sions are vul­ner­a­ble to forgery. Fol­low­ing re­search con­ducted by Claims Man­age­ment & Ad­just­ing Ltd (CMA) the view of the DVSA is that the on­line data­base holds the au­thor­i­ta­tive record – and not the phys­i­cal copy. The DVSA ad­vises any­one with con­cerns over the va­lid­ity of a pa­per cer­tifi­cate to check it on the the gov.uk web­site. CMA man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, Philip Swift, says: ‘Most buy­ers ac­cept pa­per MoTs at face value, but 25 years of in­ves­ti­gat­ing cloned and clocked ve­hi­cles has taught us not to be so trust­ing.’
