MOT Test Centre

In our new mot centre we try to cater for your requirements we offer you the facility to mot your vehicle at a time that suits you, you can drop your vehicle off from 6.00am and collect it up to 9.00 pm or book your vehicle in and wait while the test is carried out..


The MOT Test is a vehicle check that is compulsory for all vehicles (including cars and motorbikes) that are over 3 years old and registered in the United Kingdom.
The test is carried out by government approved MOT testing centres, and becomes due 3 years after first registration and the certificate is valid for one year, after which the vehicle needs to be re tested.
Testing ensures that vehicles are in a safe and roadworthy condition at the time of the test, but it is worth bearing in mind that a certificate only guarantees roadworthiness at the time of issue even though the certificate is valid for a year. Something to bear in mind if you are buying a used car.
A MOT test can be taken up to 28 days before the due date. The certificate will be issued from the due date rather than the earlier test date.


A reminder service is available, you will be contacted via either email or text message 28 days prior to the due date as a reminder of your vehicles test date.
