Replace a lost MOT certificate


Junior Member
From today (Wednesday 8 May 2019), motorists will be able to access copies of their MOT certificates online.
In our latest Matters of Testing blog post, Grant Thunder tells you more about this, how it works and what it
will mean for you

In 2018, more than 636,000 duplicate MOT certificates were issued in Great Britain. That’s about 2% of all MOT tests done each year.

Duplicates are issued when vehicle owners lose or damage the original, and need a new one – perhaps when selling a car.

The MOT team has been working hard to make that process simpler.

So we’re excited to launch a new service today (8 May 2019) that takes the stress out of losing an MOT certificate by allowing vehicle owners to:

  • view and save their MOT certificate as a PDF
  • print their MOT certificate

The replace MOT certificate service can be used 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.
