Do you get points for no MOT?
No, the only drawback is that you wouldn't know whether your vehicle is roadworthy if you haven't done aan MOT test.
Besides that, no points will be issued on your driving license if you're simply driving without an MOT, so be tension-free from that end.
A study claims that over a third of class three and four vehicles (cars, wagons and passenger vehicles having lesser than 12 seats) failed their MOT test on the first attempt, held a year ago.
If you haven’t had an MOT, there’s a possibility that your car has an unroadworthy flaw that you're not knowledgeable of. A contemporary MOT test will identify these flaws, making your car or van meet the safety requirements and legal to be driven.
If the police catch you driving a car or van that is in a hazardous condition - the liabilities will be worse if, for example, the vehicle components i.e brakes, steering wheel or tyres aren't working properly. In such circumstances, a fined of up to £2,500 can be imposed and each flaw identified, counts for up to three points on your licence. Your licence may get cancelled if many defects are identified, especially if you're a fresh driver and have recently learnt how to drive, plus also if you already have points on your licence.
