All of our MOT prices do not apply to Class 5 MOTs, and MOT’s are by appointment only.
Our MOT test centre is authorised by VOSA the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency which is our governing body. An MOT is a legal requirement for all vehicles over 3 years old with purpose of making sure that your car meets with environmental and roadworthiness standards. An MOT test is different to a regular service, as an MOT test checks the vehicle’s general mechanical condition.
At our MOT test centre we provide you with the new MOT certificate, which is a computer printed document. It is also the receipt of your MOT test and the same information will be stored on the MOT database. Your MOT can be done 1 month before your current MOT certificate expires, and if your vehicle does not pass the MOT test we offer a free retest if bought back in 10 working days.
At our MOT testing centre we provide you with the utmost comfort, and you can wait in our comfortable waiting room and view your MOT being carried out while you enjoy a hot or cold beverage. Each test takes approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour at our MOT test centre, and if you wish you can leave your vehicle with us to be tested.
