Your Go-To Garage for MOTs for Trike Motorbikes

An MOT is a mandatory inspection that every vehicle that’s three years or older must undergo every year. While all garages cater to cars, vans, and standard motorcycles, very few can cater for a trike motorbike. MOT specialists David Smith Motors, are one of the few exceptions. If you own a trike that’s due its annual inspection, bring it to us today, and we’ll get it checked over in no time.

Why is an MOT Mandatory?

A trike motorcycle MOT, as with any other MOT, is a legal requirement to ensure that a vehicle complies with key roadworthiness and environmental requirements. It’s a safety check designed to make certain that your vehicle is safe to drive. Failure to comply, for instance driving with an expired certificate, can carry harsh penalties. Also, your road tax and insurance will be voided.

Fortunately, you can request your trike motorbike MOT at any time. At David Smith Motors, we highly recommend scheduling it in at least a month before the current one expires. This avoids the hassle of forgetting to renew it and finding yourself caught out.

What Does a Trike Motorcycle MOT Entail?

When scheduling in your 3-wheeler, we’ll provide you with a slot that’s convenient for you. An MOT inspection typically won’t take too long, so you’re more than welcome to wait, or we can let you know when your trike is ready to collect. A standard trike motorbike MOT entails a range of checks, and your vehicle must score a pass for each one in order to be deemed safe to drive.

MOTs for trike motorbikes focus on a range of areas, including:

  • Steering and Suspension
  • Brakes
  • Bodywork
  • Windscreen
  • Seatbelts
  • Emissions
One of the few garages to specialise in trike MOTs.

If your vehicle successfully passes each test, it will achieve an overall “Pass” mark, and you’ll be issued with an up-to-date MOT certificate. If, however, your trike achieves a “Fail”, you’ll need to address the problems before a pass mark can be issued. Our team are happy to provide any required repair work and will re-test your vehicle once it’s ready.

Please note that if your MOT certificate expires, you’ll only legally be allowed to drive it to and from the garage. Also, please note that an MOT is a general inspection and does not guarantee the mechanical condition or performance of the vehicle. For this, we recommend booking your trike in for a servicing.
