WHAT IS AN MOT CHECK?
COVID-19 Update: To help our customers keep their vehicles safe during this difficult time MOT’s are FREE to all customers. We will also pickup and return your vehicle and abide by Government social distancing and hygiene measures.
The MOT test is an examination of your vehicle to ensure it meets the minimum standards required to be allowed on the road. The Vehicle and Operating Services Agency (VOSA) are responsible for setting these standards, and monitoring both the MOT testing station and the MOT tester. All VOSA approved MOT testers have a regular quality check carried out to ensure a consistent professional level of care.
You are allowed to have your MOT test carried out and post-dated up to one calendar month in advance of the due date. When booking your MOT check do bear in mind that the standards are a minimum requirement to allow the vehicle on the road and should not be used as a substitute for a scheduled service which comprises a much more comprehensive examination of your vehicle’s operating systems, does your car also need a service?
