MOT's

Cars more than 3 years old must undergo an annual test of safety, road-worthiness and exhaust emissions – an MOT.

The MOT covers lighting and signalling equipment, steering, brakes, tyres and wheels, seat belts, bodywork, exhaust, fuel & emissions and drivers view of the road.

MOT Status Check

If your car fails the MOT, the required repairs should be done and a retest carried out. We can carry out the necessary repairs and retest your car.

We also run a free “Reminder” service. If you tell us your registration number, contact details and the date of your MOT, We will contact you one month before the due date, just to remind you.

The MOT test ensures the vehicle is in roadworthy condition. However, it is not the same as having your vehicle serviced and the MOT test does not check the general mechanical condition of the vehicle.


Without a current MOT certificate, you will be unable to drive your vehicle lawfully or renew your road tax. The penalty for not having an up to date MOT certificate could be a fine. Also if the vehicle is involved in an accident you may be asked to produce your MOT certificate. An insurance claim could be affected by the absence of your MOT, especially in the case of injury.
