Recently a post was on here with a link to a reminder system set up by the Government to remind people when their MOT is due, with a reminder sent a month before it expires.
I registered and had acknowledgement but my MOT expires on March 30th and I have not received a reminder.
Has anyone else had experience of the system and whether it works.

Just had one of our cars MoT and the reminder did work fine. But as the car requires service and tax at the same time it’s niot something I forget , as it also goes into my cloud calendar to remind me.

If you google mot check,you'll get on a gov. Website,put your reg in and it'll tell you when your mot and tax are due.You can check any car and it's got other useful info,like,you check all your last mots as to what it's failed or been advised on,also if you have any outstanding recall actions required.This service is particularly good to check out prospective new car purchase,hope this helps,cheers.

I got a reminder for Mrs Chrisbee's car 28 days before the MOT was due. I opted to also get one 2 weeks before the MOT expires but as I've now had the MOT done I doubt if I'll get that one. The system seems to work great to me. :)

No idea why this has ended up in new members and not general where I posted it,
In any case I registered and had confirmation but as I say no reminder received

I got the reminder for the tax a couple of weeks back but no MOT needed at the moment so cannot comment on that. I did take out an agreement with the dealer that covers my servicing at a good discount, so when the car is three, they will remind me as well.

I had registered two cars on the gov website and had the first and second reminders - booked for service and MOT on Monday and Tuesday with a little help from my flexible friend!
