In 2019, the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) launched a free service for motorists. It allows vehicle owners to download and print copies of their vehicle’s MOT certificate. If you request the replacement certificate from the MOT test centre, they can charge up to £10.

 

To obtain the certificate online or at the test centre where your car was assessed, you will need your vehicle registration (your number plate) and your 11-digit reference (with no spaces) from the vehicle’s log book (also known as the V5C).
