Why do you need an MOT?
MOT tests are a necessity for any car over the age of three years old. This examination was introduced by the DVSA and ensures that every car undergoes a yearly evaluation to ensure that it is performing to the correct standard and quality in compliance with both safety and emissions.
What is the difference between a car service and MOT?
Car services and MOT are completely separate and different from one another. An MOT evaluation aims to establish if the car is safe to drive on the road and is compliant with emissions regulations and is a legal requirement. A car service will examine the overall state of the car and is not required by law.
The MOT process
Throughout your MOT inspection, our experienced mechanics will examine the car’s performance and undertake an extensive amount of tests and inspections inside the car, beneath the bonnet and under the car.
If your car passes the MOT and is road safe, you will be given a VT20 for, however, if your car fails the inspection, we will issue you with a VT30 form and this will be registered by our technicians. If your car passes the MOT but has parts which may need replacing or attention before it’s next inspection, we will notify you of it upon collection.
The punishment of not holding a current MOT document will result in a fine, your road tax will be nonrenewable and you won’t be able to drive your car in the eyes of the law.
