An MOT test is an annual assessment of a car's safety, emissions and roadworthiness. It is required by law in the UK for any car that is 3 or more years old to ensure that your vehicle is safe to drive.
MOT checks can only be carried out at garages with technicians that have been officially certified by the DVSA (formerly VOSA). Cars that do not have a valid, up-to-date MOT certificate are not legally allowed to drive on UK roads and may have their insurance invalidated. You can also be fined up to £1000 for driving a vehicle without a valid MOT Certificate.
Most Cars, 4x4s and Vans undergo a Class 4 MOT, but motorbikes, goods vehicles (between 3,000-3,500kg) and vehicles with more than 12 seats are tested to different criteria.
We are authorised to carry out both Class 4 & Class 7 MOTs. See below to determine your category.
Booking is essential. Contact 015395 66029 to make your appointment.
