Free MOT reminder
on: 09 Oct 21, 08:06:32
Did you all know that the DVLA offer a free MOT reminder system. You just enter your vehicle details and contact number on the directgov website, they then text you 4 weeks, 3 weeks, 2 weeks and then 1 week before is is due.  I have used this for a number of years on all of my vehicles, just make sure you use the Directgov website and not a private company that will charge.

Or if you have a smart phone (like 99% of people do) you can put in a re occurring reminder in the calendar that will give you a notification as many times as you like as frequently as you like and it's so much easier to cancel if you change bikes.

You can also do this with an email account too.
If you are old school and still use a paper calendar / diary that you check at least once a day add it in there.

You may also find that if you have a regular MOT tester they too will send you a reminder when it's due, my local indipendant garage / tester sends me a txt message 1 month before the MOT is due with a list of available dates he can book in, he also sends an annual reminder when servicing is due and dates I can be booked in for.  From a business perspective its a good idea and a good way to keep repeat custom.

SOooo many ways to achieve this.
I use the app as per image. So much detail available and it alerts on ALL vehicles in my garage...
