Our mechanics are fully qualified MOT Testers, having gone through the Government run VOSA MOT scheme.

If you’re local we’ll be happy to collect and return your car, or leave it with us and we’ll tell you as soon as the test is complete.
Book you MOT in today by giving us a call on 01386 47004 and we’ll book you in as soon as we can. Don’t forget that you can have you MOT done up to 28 days ahead of it’s expiry date, so don’t leave it too late!
To help you carry out some basic pre MOT checks before you book your car in for a test, here is a 10 point checklist from The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT):
- Headlights and indicators
Check that all of the car’s lights function properly – headlights, sidelights, rear lights, hazard lights and indicators.
- Brake lights
Press the brake pedal and ask a friend to check that the rear brake lights come on – including any supplementary brake strip light.
- Number plate
Make sure that the number plate is clean and legible – even a quick wipe with a cloth can make a difference. The font and spacing of letters must also comply with legal requirements to be passed by the MOT station.
- Wheels and tyres
Check that wheels and tyres are undamaged. The minimum legal tyre tread depth is 1.6mm and any tyres with less than this will be marked as an MOT ‘fail’.
- Seats and seatbelts
The driver’s seat should adjust forwards and backwards and all seatbelts should be in good working order. Tug sharply on all seatbelts to check that they react as they’re supposed to if you have to brake severely.
Check the view out of the front of the car for damage – any damage larger than 40mm will cause a ‘fail’, as will any damage wider than 10mm in the ‘swept’ area of the windscreen in front of the driver.
- Windscreen wipers
Make sure your wipers are able to keep your windscreen clean – any tears or holes in the wiper rubber can be an MOT fail.
Top up the washer bottle before taking the car in for a test – something as simple as an empty container can cause an MOT fail.
Give a short blast of the horn – if it doesn’t work, your dealer will need to repair or replace it.
- Fuel and engine oil
Make sure your car is filled with enough fuel and engine oil – you can be turned away from the MOT without suitable levels of either, both of which are required by the dealership when running the car to test its emissions levels.
