All the MOTs are carried out by our fully trained technicians who will thoroughly examine your car. The MOT test will take around 45 minutes to an hour and includes an in-depth check of the tyres, brakes, suspension, lights, steering and emission levels. 

Our Aftercare Specialists will then be on hand to take you through the results of the test. If your vehicle passes the test with flying colours, an MOT certificate will be handed to you. However, if your car needs some TLC in order to pass the test, our Aftercare Specialists will be prepared to give you honest and accurate advice to help you get back on the road.

Remember, if your car is over 3 years old, an MOT test is compulsory every year. Book in for a time convenient for you and we’ll contact you to confirm your booking then sit back, enjoy our relaxing coffee lounges (complete with entertainment for the kids in our dedicated kids zones!) and grab a coffee whilst you wait.

MOT Preparation Tips

Before you bring in your car for an MOT test, there are a number of things you can do to give your car the best possible chance of passing. Here are some hints and tips to help you secure that all important MOT certificate.

- Check the condition of your tyres – the minimum tread depth is 1.6mm

- Test that all the lights are working

- Check your windscreen for any chips or cracks – often your insurance company will                   allow replacement of windscreens without affecting your policy

  Check you have plenty of washer fluid and that your windscreen wipers are clearing                   the screen
