Thousands of Brits don't know when their next MOT is due and risk being slapped with hefty fines if they don't renew in time, according to new research.

The mandatory test is crucial to ensure that your vehicle meets the legal standards to drive. While it is an important requirement, new data from the experts at Goodbye Car indicates that most people don't keep track of when or how to book their next MOT.

The specialists have uncovered - and answered - the most commonly asked MOT questions. While asking when it's due wracked up over 50,000 online searches, other queries including how long an MOT takes and costs were also frequently searched.

If you are caught driving without a valid MOT in the UK, then you can be fined up to £1000. This can increase up to £2500 if you are considered to be driving a dangerous car, as well as potentially landing you with three points on your licence.
