If the time you require is not available, then I am afraid that slot has already been taken. Please ensure you arrive 5 minutes prior to your booked MOT time. Each MOT test usually takes around 45 minutes, however, please allow for an hour in case any minor repairs are required.
Failure to attend your appointment may result in an admin charge.
Once your vehicle is 3 years old you are required by law to have an annual safety check, commonly known as an MOT. You must keep any vehicles driven on the road in a roadworthy condition. The MOT test checks that your vehicle meets road safety and environmental standards.
If the vehicle passes all MOT checks, a VT20 MOT certificate is issued. If the vehicle fails its MOT checks, a VT30 document is issued. Items that aren’t quite a failure, but will require future attention are listed as ‘advisory’ items.
At Sowton MOT’s should your car fails its MOT, we ALWAYS offer a FREE retest within 10 working days following the day it originally failed.
An MOT isn’t the same as having your vehicle serviced and doesn’t check its general mechanical condition.
