MOTs from £35.00

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 and your insurance isn’t valid if you don’t have an MOT certificate.

MOT while you wait

One of our approved testers will carry out your vehicle’s MOT while you wait (it takes around 45 minutes). Or you can drop it off at your convenience before your allocated appoint time.

We carry out MOT tests on these classes of vehicle:

  • Cars – class 4 (£35.00)

We’ll test the following aspects of your vehicle when we do an MOT:

  • Driving controls

  • Exterior

  • Lights

  • Under the bonnet

  • Under the vehicle

  • Brake performance

  • Exhaust emissions

Clear explanations

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 also fix the problems? Usually straight after the MOT once we have your approval.

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.
