We are approved by VOSA
(Vehicle & Operator Services Agency)
to carry out MOT's.
What is an MOT?
Originally called the Ministry of Transportation Test, an MOT is an annual examination of a vehicle that is three years old or more. Vehicle goes under a statutory examination of all the major components to ensure that they have not worn to a level which makes the vehicle unsafe to drive and the vehicle complies with a minimum safety standard as defined by the VOSA. It is important to remember that an MOT pass confirms that the vehicle has met certain minimum legal requirements. It does not mean that the vehicle will meet or will continue to be roadworthy the following year.
When does my car need an MOT?
It is your responsibility to ensure that your vehicle is examined every 12 months. Without an MOT certificate, you will be unable to renew your road tax. Having a current MOT certificate is also a legal requirement in the UK
You can book a MOT up to 28 days in advance of its due date. In fact it is not widely known that the expiry date on your new MOT is in 12 months from the expiry of your old one. This means you could have a MOT that last 13 months
What do I need to take with me?
Once you have booked your vehicle in for its MOT, remember to take your Registration Document, if it is your vehicle’s first MOT and a means of paying the current fee.
What should I do if the car fails its MOT?
If the vehicle fails its MOT and it does not meet legal requirements, the vehicle must be repaired to comply with MOT Test standards. The report your Nominated Tester gives you will help you.
If you think the Nomianted Tester has been unfair you can appeal against the decision. Ask for a VT17 form that explains what to do.
We undertake any type of MOT failure repair and will get you back on the road as quickly and as cost effectively as possible
