All about MOTs

What is an MOT?

An MOT is a standard test on the safety, road-worthiness and emissions of your car.

When do I need to get one?

Most cars need an MOT once a year after being registered for three years. As an Uber driver, your PHV vehicle needs to be tested every six months after one year on the road.

What do I need to do?

Make sure you know when the last MOT took place. Uber will send you a reminder before the test is due. If you think you need a test – give us a call and we will check for you.

Where should I have the MOT done?

If you do need an MOT, any local garage will be able to help. Kwik-Fit are very reliable and you can book in advance at thousands of locations for as little as £30.

What about the documentation?

After your MOT test is complete, you will receive a certificate. Take a picture to upload to your Uber dashboard and then you will need to return the original to Upfront.

How much will it cost?

At Upfront, your rental cost includes MOT. So when you need one, you can book it yourself and we will refund up to £40 against your next weekly payment.
