How much does a motorcycle MOT cost?

The DVSA splits motorbikes into two groups, which are class 1 and class 2. These are:

  • Class 1 motorbike: engine up to 200cc
  • Class 2 motorbike: engine over 200cc

It’s important to note that all of the motorcycle MOT stations in our list are certified to carry out class 1 and class 2 MOT tests. However, for the cost of an MOT test, you will need to keep the class in mind.

MOT cost by motorcycle class
Class 1 motorcycle
A motorcycle with an engine up to 200cc without a sidecar will cost £29.65 or less
Class 1 motorcycle with a sidecar
A motorcycle with an engine up to 200cc and an attached sidecar will cost £37.80 or less
Class 2 motorcycle
A motorcycle with an engine larger than 200cc without a sidecar will cost £29.65 or less
Class 2 motorcycle with a sidecar
A motorcycle with an engine larger than 200cc and an attached sidecar will cost £37.80 or less

Please note that these fees are the maximum fee that the motorcycle MOT station near you can charge. Therefore, some MOT stations may have offers or charge less for a motorbike MOT.

When does my bike need an MOT?

A new motorbike doesn’t need an MOT test for the first 3 years from the date of registration.

Just like with a car, the first motorcycle MOT test will be due when the motorcycle is 3 years old. After this first MOT test, you will need to have an MOT test every single year, before the previous MOT certificate expires.

If your MOT certificate expires, it is illegal to ride your motorbike, unless it’s to a motorcycle MOT station to obtain an MOT for your bike.
