When your company car needs to go for a MOT test, we will help you throughout the process. We support you when you need to book an appointment for a MOT test, and we handle the payment and administration.
The periodic inspection is mandatory
According to section 54 of the Road Traffic Act, passenger cars and vans must be inspected after having received a notice. The first MOT test is 4 years after the car's registration date. The car is subsequently called in for inspection every two years.
The Danish Transport Authority will send a notice for the MOT test to your e-Boks 6-8 weeks before the deadline. If you do not comply with the time of the notice from the Danish Transport Authority, you will be fined DKK 2,000, and in the end, the police may confiscate the car's license plate.
When should you drive your company car for inspection?
If the company car turns 4 years old during your leasing period, you are responsible for driving the car to the MOT test when you receive the notice. If your leasing car will be returned before it turns 4 years, it does not have to go for an MOT test while you have it. The company car does not have to go for an MOT test if the car's return date falls on the day before it turns 4 years. In that situation, you can simply disregard the notice from the Danish Transport Authority, and we will take care of the MOT test.
