MOTs

The majority of road vehicles over three years old require an annual MOT. The test has been designed to ensure that your vehicle is safe to drive for you, other road users and pedestrians, as well as ensuring that your car complies with national safety standards.

If it is your vehicle’s first MOT, or you would like to use a new garage for your annual testing, then look no further. We are able to arrange and submit vehicles for class IV (4) and class VII (7).
