Ever Forgotten to Renew Your MOT, or Lost Important Paperwork?


We all love driving cars, but who loves keeping all the service records, remembering when the MOT or insurance is due, or finding out if a local garage is any good or not? Not many.

In today’s digital world, with customer ratings available whenever we search for something online, it’s quite surprising that we still keep all the service and maintenance records for our cars in a paper format, and rely on word of mouth to find a local garage.

Paperwork usually (or hopefully) ends up in a file or a drawer somewhere, or gets lost long before it can be passed on to the next owner. Finding things like your MOT certificate, or remembering when it expires, is a challenge for some.

So, maybe it’s not surprising that someone’s come up with a website, www.motoriety.co.uk, to keep all these documents in a digital format, and a system to automatically remind us about important things like MOT expiry dates and find local garages or services that have been rated by other owners. As it knows this stuff, it can also generate service and MOT offers from any local garages that are registered, as well as aggregated insurance and breakdown cover quotes.

It makes sure that any service or maintenance work is digitally verified by the garage that’s done the work, and, in return, when the customer has rated and reviewed the garage, it creates a comprehensive digital record - or ‘AUTObiography’ as they call it – which can easily be transferred to subsequent owners, and makes a vehicle more valuable than one without a service history.

This fully traceable review system helps ensure a garage’s reputation isn’t damaged by rogue reviews, and gives us trustworthy recommendations, allowing for more informed decisions.

Lucy Burnford who founded Motoriety says: “Everyone has a story about how they hadn’t realised their MOT had expired, forgot to renew their car tax on time, or didn’t service their car for tens of thousands of miles. People aren’t letting these lapse or breaking the law intentionally, but there are usually no reminders, particularly if your car is secondhand. The onerous amount of admin involved in owning and maintaining a car is ridiculous, and it’s all fragmented. Until now, there was no centralised tool designed to manage every bit of it. Motoriety is the obvious solution.

“Trust in garages is another major issue for motorists. Most of us dread taking our cars to the garage because of the uncertainty and fear of being ripped off. But there are some really great local businesses out there that deserve to be championed. Our two-way garage review and rating process is unique as both garages and motorists have a meaningful incentive to participate. Whilst there are various existing review websites, we all know reviews can be falsified, so we've come up with a fair system to eliminate that risk. It’s Motoriety’s mission to bring game-changing benefits to both motorists and the motor industry.”
