We provide MOT tests for a range of vehicles owned by local residents and businesses.
You can bring your vehicle to any of our depots for an MOT test. Tests are carried out by qualified technicians. We offer a quality service with prices starting from £45.00. Following the test, we will advise you of any work needed to bring your vehicle up to the necessary legal standard. You don't need to have repair works carried out by us and you can take your vehicle elsewhere to be repaired.
To book any of our services, including winter car checks, by contact us at the relevant depot.
