Road Worthy Certificates

By Jesse Subscribe to RSS | February 1st 2012 | Views:

If you have a vehicle then there are many things you need to do to ensure that you are legally enabled to drive it. For instance you need to make sure first and foremost that you have a driving license – and without this you will not be legally entitled to drive any vehicle. You need to have insurance for your car of course and without that you can face serious legal issues as well. Your car then needs to have tax paid, and on top of that it needs to have its regular MOT. And linking in with that latter point it also needs a road worthy certificate, and it is important to make sure that you have one if you are going to legally drive your car. When you buy your car, if it is sold registered then it should come with one, but you will still have to renew it from time to time, and it can help greatly if you do this before selling your vehicle too.

To be considered road worthy your car must be able to pass its MOT and demonstrate that it is both safe to drive on the road and that it isn't going to suffer an imminent breakdown. How do you make sure that your car is road worthy and will pass the road worthy certificate? Well it's partly a matter of maintaining your vehicle as you go along – and the more you do this the better you will be able to avoid it being a problem later on.

There are several things you can do to help your car last longer too. For instance, make sure to treat your vehicle carefully and not to unnecessarily push it by revving the engine a lot or misusing the clutch. Small bad habits when you drive can cause you to burn your car out earlier and create unnecessary problems. Likewise you should make sure to drive in the correct gear and to brake properly. It's worth doing some research here into the correct practices when breaking to keep your car road worthy.

You can also make other choices that will affect the condition of your car – such as the route you take. Driving on a very badly maintained road for instance is far more likely to damage your tires, your suspension your brakes and more – and simply taking the decision to make a slightly longer route in favor of looking out for your car can often be the right move.

You should also be sure to be observant and to be conscientious in looking out for signs that your car may not be well. If you have driven your car on a regular basis then it's possible for problems to creep up on you and for you not to notice as this happens. So keep an eye out and consciously ask yourself the questions. Does it start as well as it always used to? Is it as quick and efficient to brake? Does it feel like the car is still driving in a straight line? Etc.
