Why does my car need an MOT Test?
When vehicles in the UK are over 3 years old, they must have a car MOT check by law. It's a legal requirement as it guarantees that your car is roadworthy as well as safe and also that the emission levels of your car are of the right standard, these areas are all requirements from the Government. MOTs can be booked in up to 31 days before the due date.
What do MOTs involve?
Our MOT car checks involve vehicle identification numbers, registration plates, lights, steering and suspension, systems, emissions, bodywork, doors, mirrors, brakes, wipes and washer bottle, windscreen, seat belt, seats, horn, fuel wheels and tyres. These areas are all part of certified DVSA (formerly DVLA) MOT checks.
How long will my MOT take?
MOTs last from 45 to 60 minutes, however, should your car need any repairs in result of the test, it will take longer due to fixing any issues and ensuring you receive your MOT pass certificate.
What happens if my car fails its MOT?
Our team are able to fix most of the repairs which may show on your MOT, we’ll undergo any necessary work at our garage and will try to keep the process quick and efficient. Should the repair take longer, you can leave your car on our premises and we will contact you when it’s ready. After the MOT test, should you require any work we will contact you with the work and an estimate of the cost.
Are there any implications to failing an MOT?
If you fail your vehicle MOT check it means that your car has not met the correct standards and requires a repair, you won’t receive a pass certificate until it is fixed. Should your vehicle not meet the necessary MOT standards then you’ll be unable to renew your road tax.
How much does a car MOT cost?
MOT costs vary depending on the vehicle you have, most MOT prices are based on the official DVSA (DVLA) charges, but they’ll also be determined by the MOT test centre you use. At Vantage Tyres we strive to provide the best value for money service and our customers are often surprised by our competitive and cheap MOTs.
