The Driver and Vehicle and Standards Agency (DVSA) maintains the Ministry of Transport (MOT) reminder service for CarVeto. Therefore, from this point on, CarVeto will be referred to as “we.”

See the following page for an up-to-date tax and MOT check certificate. You will need a valid vehicle registration number.

Using the MOT Reminder Service

The MOT reminder service must not be used for unlawful purposes nor in a manner that infringes on the rights of others. Furthermore, it should not be used to inhibit or restrict the use and enjoyment of the site by other persons.

DVSA is constantly updating the MOT reminder service. This may include removing or changing any content without any notice.

The reminder service is provided voluntarily and is intended to remind owners of their upcoming MOT due date or the due date of their yearly test for public service and heavy goods vehicles. It is entirely the responsibility of the vehicle’s owner to make sure the vehicle is safe for driving on the roads.

Neither we nor DVSA is not responsible if an owner does not receive an SMS message or email specifying the upcoming MOT due date. To use these services, you must provide a mobile phone number, or email address that is either owned by you or you have permission to use.

Only people with a vested interest in the vehicle are eligible for MOT reminders.

If a vehicle’s registration number is changed, the MOT reminder service will automatically update your subscription to the new number. This process may take several days from the date the DVLA confirms the registration number transfer has been processed. If your personalised registration number is transferred to a new vehicle, you are responsible for unsubscribing and registering for your new vehicle’s MOT reminder.

If the mobile phone number or email address you have signed up with is no longer in service or exists, we will automatically cancel your MOT reminder subscription.
