An increasing number of Post Offices won't accept a vehicle Certificate of Compliance in lieu of a DVSA MOT Certificate. You're therefore advised to check with your Post Office before booking a vehicle test to find out whether the Certificate of Compliance is acceptable. If necessary we offer the option to select a DVSA MOT in addition to the Certificate of Compliance which you can select when booking your vehicle test instead of the 6 or 12 month test.

Book your taxi vehicle test


You must not book your test for more than 4 weeks before the due date of your vehicle test. Vehicles booked outside of this timeframe will be turned away from the test centre and must rebook for a later date.

It's your responsibility to ensure your vehicle undergoes the correct test within the required timescales. You won't receive a reminder in relation to your 6 month test. Make sure that you know when your 6 month test date is due and when your licence will expire. Please read the guide to taxi test due dates (PDF 189Kb) for more information.
