MOT tests

We carry out MOT tests for cars and small vans up to 3.5 tonnes.

We provide a fully independent service at our brand new test centre. We do not carry out repairs so you can be sure of an objective test.

Retests are free providing the original test was taken with us and retested in 10 working days. It is your responsibility to ensure the repairs are carried out and a retest booked.

The initial MOT test takes 1 hour and retests take 30 minutes.

You can wait with your vehicle, wait in our waiting room with MOT viewing area, or leave your vehicle for collection later.
