What is an MOT?

An MOT (ministry of transport) is primarily a road safety measure designed to ensure as far as possible that all cars, motorcycles and light goods vehicles more than 3 years old are:

  • properly maintained and;
  • at least once a year are examined at an authorised MOT test station to make sure that they comply with certain important requirements of the law

Why do you need an MOT?

It is illegal to drive a vehicle that requires a test on public roads without a current MOT, except when driving to or from a pre-booked MOT Test. So why risk it!

The test certificate relates only to the condition of the testable items at the time of the test and should not be regarded as evidence of their condition at any other time; nor should it be accepted as evidence of the general mechanical condition of the vehicle.

We are able to offer both class 1V and V11 MOT’s to owners of vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes.

Our friendly staff can arrange scheduled bookings for you to present your vehicle for test. You are then offered to wait whilst the test is carried out, or you are able to arrange a collection time to suit.

Should your vehicle fail the test, we will offer you a free of charge retest providing the vehicle is presented to us within 10 working days.
