Change your MOT/ vehicle test appointment online

Change your MOT/ vehicle test appointment to another date via the green link. Your appointment notice will tell you the last day you must do this by. If you change your appointment by this date, the payment you've already made is carried over to the new date.

Before you start

There is a big demand for MOT appointments so you might find it difficult to get the appointment as soon as you'd like. Cancellations normally happen throughout the day so by following the green link below you'll be able to see the dates that have become available. Same day MOT appointments (if available) are released for booking daily, Monday to Friday.

The last day you can change and rebook your appointment and have the payment you've already made carried over to the new date, is in the table below under 'Additional information'. 

When changing and rebooking your MOT/ vehicle test appointment you will need the following which can be found on your appointment letter:

  • the booking reference number
  • the vehicle registration number or trailer ID number
  • the last four digits of the chassis number

You can find out how any personal information you send to the Department for Infrastructure (Driver and Vehicle Agency) when using this service will be handled by viewing their privacy notice
