The law requires that everyone who uses a vehicle on the road must keep it in a roadworthy condition at all times. Once a year, road-worthiness is checked in the interests of road safety and the environment by the test we know as the “MOT”. The first test is required once a car is three years old (There are different rules if you use it as a taxi or if it has more than 8 passenger seats). It should be clearly understood that the MOT is a minimum standard that your car should always meet; it is not a standard you should bring your car up to once a year. The MOT looks at some important items on your car to see that they meet the key legal minimum requirements at the time of test. You should be aware that the MOT certificate is not a guarantee of the general mechanical condition of a vehicle. For more information, please visit: https://www.gov.uk/getting-an-mot
We pride ourselves on our great customer service, honesty and transparency. For this reason we have a viewing window so you can watch your MOT take place. Have any questions? Simply ask one of our mechanics and they’ll be happy to explain everything whilst you watch from a safe distance.
