100% Unbiased MOT Test; we will not carry out any work on your vehicle should you fail your MOT
Why you need a M.O.T:
Originally called the Ministry of Transportation test, an MOT is an annual examination of a vehicle that is three years old or more. The MOT tests both the safety of your vehicle and the level of emissions in the exhaust.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your vehicle is examined every 12 months. Without an MOT certificate, you will be unable to renew your road tax. Having a current MOT certificate is also a legal requirement in the UK.
MOT Nominated Testers are qualified to assess your vehicle against specific safety criteria and to pass it as acceptable and safe, or not. The acceptable standards are as recorded in the current Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) Vehicle Inspection Manual.
What we test:
One test is to check that your lights are working properly. The Tester will be looking for the correct operation of your lights, their condition and that they are the correct colour and set to the correct height.
We will also check, headlights, stop lights, side lights number plate lights, two rear reflectors and indicator lights. Hazard warning lights will also be checked with the engine running as well as switched off. As well as checking the general appearance of the vehicle, they will test that there is an audible or visual signal that can be seen or heard from the driver's seat for the indicators, hazard warning lights and rear fog lamps.
The age of your vehicle determines whether you need certain lights or not. Hazard warning lights and side repeater lights are mandatory on vehicles registered from April 1st 1986. A rear fog light is required on vehicles registered from April 1st 1980 but will not be tested if fitted to an older vehicle.
