You have to get the MOT done this year otherwise the car won't be road legal and your insurance will be invalid. I'm not sure if you can buy your tax with the MOT due that close but I think you can, if not the MOT can be done early and dated ahead but again I'm not sure of how early. I'd think the DVLA would have a website that could tell you all!

You need to get it MOT'd no later than the expiry date of the existing MOT or the third anniversary of the car's first registration. You can MOT it up to one month before that date and have the MOT forward dated.

Then if you tax it for six months this time, and twelve months next time, you'll have split the two six months apart, and you won't get both costs in the same month next year....;)
