Classification Of Issues Under An MOT

As per the DVSA-guidelines, the issues under this annual test are classified as follows:


These are the minor or less significant issues in your vehicle. Vehicles with minor issues still successfully pass the MOT Folkestone. However, these issues should not be neglected as they can lead to further complications or costly servicing bills in the long run.


Major issues in a Class 4 vehicle lead to an MOT failure. In case of such issues, make sure to get them resolved as soon as possible.


These are significant issues that can jeopardise your on-road driving safety. Such issues lead to an immediately MOT failure.

MOT Certification

Based on the test results, we offer either of the two certificates:

VT20: This certificate means that your vehicle has successfully passed the MOT with minor or no issues.

VT30: In case your vehicle has major or dangerous issues, it will fail the MOT, and you will receive a VT30 certificate.

In this case you will no longer be allowed to drive the vehicle until all issues are resolved and a partial re-test has been carried out.

If you let us carry out the repairs within 10 working days, this partial re-test will be free of charge.
