If you vehicle fails its MOT, we will contact you for costs to repair what is needed, in order to and get the vehicle to pass its MOT, and be back on the road in no time.

The MOT Test is a requirement for all vehicles from 3 years old and over, and covers a vehicle for 12 months. There is no grace period to which you are able to drive for without an MOT, so don’t get caught short, and book your MOT for up to 1 month in advance to keep your vehicle roadworthy, taxed and insured.
