If your car passes its MOT then that lasts for a year, with the date it runs out printed on your MOT pass certificate. Beware that you can be fined up to £1,000 for driving a vehicle without a valid MOT. You are able to get an MOT up to a month (minus a day) before it runs out and you will keep the same renewal date.
Your car relies on the grip your tyres tread provides when braking and stopping in the shortest possible distance. The stopping distance will increase as tyre tread wears out, so it’s important that you check your tyres regularly. It is recommended that tyres are replaced when the tread depth is at 3mm, this is to main the best perfomance when breaking. However, the legal limit for minimum tread depth in the UK is 1.6mm across the whole tyre.
