A mandatory test on all vehicles over the age of three, the MOT test regulated by the Driver and Vehicles Standard Agency has been set in place to ensure that all vehicles meet a required safety and environment standard. We arrange your yearly MOT and make sure it’s conducted by a nominated DVSA approved tester. We can provide MOT tests for classes 4, 4a, 1, 2, 3 and 7, so whatever vehicle you drive, you can come to us at Larchwood Service Centre.
During your MOT, key parts of your vehicle such as the horn, brakes and overall body condition are examined to make sure they adhere to the DVSA required safety and environmental standards.
Without a valid MOT certificate, it is illegal to drive that vehicle on the roads. Without an up to date certificate, both insurance and tax becomes invalid. To cover yourself, you can book an MOT up to a month before it’s due so that in the event of a failure, there is plenty of time for repairs.
For drivers who discover faults within their vehicle that they were unaware of and thought were running smoothly, we offer a free MOT retest within 10 days and honest and accurate advice on how best to restore your vehicle.
Use our online booking tool by simply entering in your registration, and you can check when your car MOT date is coming up. You can book up to 28 days before your MOT is due so that you get a full 13 months MOT cover.
