MOT testing service status

We’ve introduced a new status page for our MOT digital services, such as MTS and MOT reminders.

The improved status page replaces our existing content on this page

The page hosts real-time information and shows if any of our MOT digital services are not operational, with regular updates on the progress we are making to resolve incidents.

It also provides a live feed of information about those services during periods of planned maintenance.


Getting and entering a contingency code

For information on how to enter contingency codes, take a look at our contingency testing guidance.

To find out how another tester can also enter a contingency test if the original test isn't available, take a look at our guidance on known issues and workarounds for the MOT testing service.

If a contingency code is not displayed above, and it's outside of MOT testing service desk opening hours, email to request a code.

Help and support

The DVSA Customer Service Centres is open  Monday to Friday between 7:30 and 6pm.

Telephone:  0300 123 9000.
