Why My Car Log?

Approx. 26 million testable cars each year. Around a quarter of people forget to renew their MOT each year, with nearly a third of those more than 1 month late.

Failure to produce an MOT certificate can result in a maximum fine of up to £1,000. No MOT may also invalidate an insurance claim.

From 1 October 2014, it is no longer a legal requirement to display a paper tax disc in your car’s windscreen so not readily visible to see the expiry date.

No, it doesn’t mean that you won’t have to pay car tax – you will, and if you don’t, you could face an instant £80 fixed penalty fine, possibly rising to over £1,000 if it goes to court.

Properly insuring a vehicle is mandatory.

Driving without insurance --you could face unlimited fine/discretionary disqualification and up to 8 penalty points

Do you purchase a permit to park your car at your home? If so, it will need to be renewed annually. Miss this and you'll get a ticket and have to pay a fine. We know people who've made this mistake before. Don't miss your renewal date!

Wouldn’t it be great to have all your car information in one easy to look up place?
