When can I bring my car in for an MOT?

We start testing from 9 am Monday to Saturday. The last MOT is commenced at 5.15 pm Monday to Friday, and at 3.00pm on Saturday. Please ring ahead of time if you are trying to catch the last MOT test.

What items get checked on the MOT?

The MOT test comprises a long list of items, many of which cannot be checked without specialist equipment, such as brakes, headlamp alignment, and exhaust emissions testers. See our MOT information section for some useful pointers.

I had my car serviced last week, so it should pass the MOT?

The MOT test and a service are two completely separate operations. However, a vehicle which has had a thorough service by a reputable garage, and has had any recommended repairs carried out, will very likely pass the MOT inspection.

Can I have my MOT and service carried out at the same time?

Of course many of our customers like to have these two often annual events done at the same time, to minimize the time the vehicle is off road.

I’ve lost my MOT test certificate can I get a duplicate?

Yes. We can search the central MOT database records, and provide a duplicate certificate, for a statutory fee of £10. If the MOT test was not carried out by us please bring along the V5 vehicle registration document.
