At C R Allen & Sons, our MOT test centre is certified to test Class 4, 5 and 7. We are able to accommodate cars, 4×4’s and light to large vans and campers. Our high door heights and large parking area also allows for us to MOT fleet and commercial vehicles, a service not offered by many garages.
An MOT is a legal requirement for all vehicles over 3 years old with the purpose of making sure that your car is inline with environmental and road safety standards. An MOT test is different to a regular service, as an MOT test checks the vehicle’s general mechanical condition.
We will provide you with your 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 completed up to one month before your current MOT certificate expires and if your vehicle does not pass the MOT test, we offer a free retest at our garage within ten working days.
Our MOT test centre is authorised by the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA), which is our governing body.
