A History of Electric Vehicles

You may be forgiven for thinking that electric vehicles are a relatively modern invention. Not so. Thanks to innovators in Hungary, the Netherlands and America, the first small-scale electric cars made an appearance in 1828. These vehicles were both crude and impractical but they were the start of something that would change the way we travel forever.

A History of the MOT Test

The Minister of Transport, Earnest Marples, introduced the Ministry of Transport (MOT) test as a key component of the 1960 Road Traffic Act. The MOT test was designed to check the technical elements of a vehicle to make sure it was safe to drive.

At present, any car that is over three years-old must legally have an MOT test at an approved testing centre every year. The test is specifically designed to check a wide variety of technical elements of a vehicle.
