MOT

MOT tests can be carried out on your car up to one month prior to the expiry date of an existing UK MOT certificate provided that you have a current MOT certificate and present this to the examiner at the time of the test. On passing the MOT, you will then receive a certificate valid from the date of expiry of your existing MOT.

  • Cars (up to 8 seats): Class 4
  • Light Commercial 3,000KG - 3,500KG: Class 7
  • Ensure your vehicle meets legal standards!
