Having a valid MOT (Ministry of Transport) certificate is a legal requirement for all cars over three years old in the UK. This simple piece of paper says your car reached the minimum legal standard required to be safely driven on British roads at the time of testing.
A valid MOT certificate is as important as your insurance and tax. Your car insurance will most likely be invalid. If you are stopped by the Police without a valid MOT certificate you will have to prove that you have an MOT test booked in. You also risk a fine up to £1000 and in extreme cases, your car can be impounded.
Your MOT Test With Eastleigh Autoworks
Prior to the MOT, Eastleigh Autoworks mechanics will check over your car and inform you about any obvious problems we find. You may choose to get these issues sorted before the MOT test, improving the chances of passing the MOT first time.
To complete your cars MOT we need to check for corrosion, tyre wear and damage, wear to brakes and suspension joints, cracks to windscreens, bulbs and exhaust emissions.
If problems are found, you will be issued with a notification of failure. Should this happen Eastleigh Autoworks will be happy to quote for the required work and if this is carried out within 10 days of the original MOT, only a partial retest fee will be charged.
A regular occurrence with a MOT is that your vehicle passes but the test station issues something called advisories. These are yet to be problems, but are likely to become so in the near future. Common advisories are worn tyres being close to the legal limit and play in suspension bushes.
These jobs are often better to be dealt with sooner rather than later and Eastleigh Autoworks will be happy to provide a free, no obligation quote for the work. It’s important to know that it is illegal to use a vehicle on a public road if it has failed and MOT test.
