I took my MH for its MOT today however despite the V5 saying it was first registered on 01/03/17 the MOT apparently isn't due until the 14th May 2020!

 

The reason I took it in today is that we are away in Spain on 01/03/20 so I thought I would get it done early...but not that early!

 

I always thought that the 'Date of First Registration' was the birthday and hence anniversary date and hence on its 3rd birthday, it should be MOT'd. 

 

It all checks out on https://www.gov.uk/check-mot-status so I am not worried but has anyone else come across this?

Not heard of that before - but I’ll trade you a few months if you like, my MOT ran out on the Suzuki mid September and it’s a bit too cold to go and get it done now, may have to leave it till next Spring.

I am sure that is the law for MOT group 4 vehicles.

Ours was due 3 years to the day of first registration. We also had it done 7 weeks early to suit us.

Right...I've got to the bottom of it.

When I bought the MH the dealer MOT'd it even though it was 10 months until it was due. They also failed to mention it to me let alone give me a copy of the certificate!

I didn't ask as I assumed that, having 10 months to run, I would just MOT it on its 3rd birthday!

Aha, my dealer also MOT’d mine by accident despite it not needing one for well over a year. As compensation, they gave me a gratis MOT when it actually was due.

This is the site to use for checking MOT. it would have shown up that there had been a previous MOT on the vehicle.

They are different sites. The one you put is check MOT status. Mine is check MOT history where you can see previous test results, advisories etc.
