A Legal Requirement
Everyone who uses a vehicle on the road must keep it in a roadworthy condition. The MOT test checks that vehicles meet road safety and environmental standards. The first MOT test for a vehicle is required when it is three years old.
An MOT test ensures your vehicle meets the minimum road safety standard. It's designed to keep you and other road users safe. In the event of an accident your insurance could be invalid if your vehicle doesn't have an current MOT.
New To The MOT
Dangerous to drive, Major and Minor failures now apply.
Your vehicle can now fail on major oil leaks, insecure under trays, aftermarket fitment HID headlight bulbs and engine management lights.
MOT while you wait
One of our approved testers can carry out your vehicle's MOT while you wait (it takes around 45 minutes). Or, we can give you a courtesy car or lift so that you can carry on with your day while we're taking care of your vehicle.
We carry out MOT tests on these classes of vehicle:
- Cars & Camper Vans - Class 4
- Mini buses - Class 5 up to 5,000kg
- Goods vehicles up to 3,500 kg - Class 7
We will test the following aspects of your vehicle when we do an MOT:
- Driving controls
- Under the bonnet
- Under the vehicle
- Brake performance
- Exhaust emissions
Our testers have lots of technical experience. If your vehicle fails, they can explain why and show you the areas causing any problems. We can usually fix the issues the same day of the MOT once you have agreed any repair costs.
When we've completed your MOT, we'll give you a list of anything that's wrong with your vehicle. We'll be very clear on which of these items are essential for ensuring it's roadworthy and which can wait.
Any additional items that we list are provided just for your information. We'll give you guidance on whether it would be advisable to have them done now or how long you could wait before attending to them.
