The MOT is your annual inspection required for any vehicle over 3 years of age from its date of registration. Predominantly a visual inspection, it has a particular focus on the safety and emissions features of your vehicle. Once complete we will be able to advise whether an MOT certificate can be issued for the following 12 months. Should your vehicle fail, we can explain why and what would be necessary to get it through the MOT. We can even provide a quote for the repair work and undertake the repairs in house.
