I have lost my MOT Certificate for my car.  Do I have to get a replacemnent or is it ok not to have the certificate just so long car actually is in date of that MOT?

Also just wondering what I do when the next MOT is due - can they just look details up electronically like the car tax people do?

PS -  I'm blaming the husband as I never lose anything and he picked car up from the garage!

You can get a duplicate from the MOT station which originally tested the car, (about a tenner)
Car will be on the database showing it is MOT'ed so no worries about getting pulled by old bill.
You dont need the certificate when you next MOT.

You would need it if you Tax at post office rather than online, and also a buyer would want it, if you were selling car.

so pay a tenner or just wait until your next MOT is due.

On the other hand, if you convinced hubby it was time for a new car you wouldn't need to bother with MOT'sTongue Out

If you are renewing tax online, system will check for Insurance and MOT certification online anyway, so dont worry of you cannot trace your MOT paper

 I have for some years (about 20), not had an MOT carried out. How quaint that they still issue paper certificates!!

It is odd isn't it especially as the insurance companies & the DVLA check electronically that you have one - seems a bit pointless.

You can get a duplicate at any MOT testing station for £10 providing you show them the V5. Or if you just want to know when your current MOT runs out then click on this link

http://motinfo.direct.gov.uk/internet/jsp/ECHID-Internet-History-Request.jsp 

or if you want a new car then talk to The Car Finder!
