If this is the first time in taking your car for an MOT or if you haven’t done so for a while, it is recommended that you read up on what to expect and the process of having your car MOT tested. If you have no time to take your car to the MOT test centre before the MOT expires, do not panic! When convenient one of our friendly and professional team members would be happy to arrange with yourself, to pick up your car from your home or work place and if required drop it back once the MOT is completed.
Many garages have areas in which to park your car before the MOT is carried out. If you had made the appointment by phone or over the internet, you should have been given straight forward instructions on where to leave your car.
When should you arrive
If you can manage to drop your vehicle off before your time slot this will make it easier for us to complete your MOT on time.
After the test
If your vehicle passes the MOT test, you will be issued with a certificate which can be used for tax and insurance purposes. It would be advisable to make a note on when your MOT expires, so you can plan in advance for the next test. If for some reason your vehicle fails the MOT test, we will issue you with a document which will state exactly why this decision has been made. One of our team would be happy to discuss this further and go through what options there are. We would be happy to supply you with a quote and match any outside quotes.
