How to find out when MOT certificate runs out?
I am trying to find out when the M.O.T. runs out on a car which belongs to my partner. I believe it was last tested in early August last year but runs out at the End of August. As she cannot find the current certificate, we need to find out this info.
Any help much appreciated
You can find out when your MOT is next due by going to the Gov.uk check vehicle info section. You just need the registration number of the vehicle and that's it. It is an online MOT service which I've used many times to check current MOT status and history when buying used cars.
FYI: VOSA (Vehicle & Operator Services Agency) which used to provide this service has now been replaced by DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency).

You can either find the information online or by calling Vehicle & Operator Services Agency (VOSA) on 0870 606 0440. To do it online, you'll need your V5C registration certificate.

Yes you can check the MOT status, put the vehicle details in here...http://www.motinfo.gov.uk
You can go online to the gov web site and put in your info from your log book and it will tell you when your MOT runs out.
