Q. How soon can you get me in?

Our online booking system books you straight into your local test centre, so if you’re in a hurry, you can book for today – right up until the appointment time.

Q. How long does it take?

The test takes 45 minutes, however please allow up to an hour in case any minor repairs are needed. Please arrive at least 5 minutes before your appointment (you can bring your car in any time from opening onwards).

Q. What types of vehicle do you MOT?

  • Cars and small vans (Class 4)
  • Class 7 Vehicles (vehicles in the 3.0 to 3.5 tonne weight range, including large vans, pickups and transits)
    See the full list of centres here: Class 7 MOT test centres

Unfortunately we cannot test three-wheeled vehicles or motorcycles in any of our centres.

Q. What’s checked?

The test is designed to ensure that your vehicle meets road safety and environmental standards. See our Advice Centre for the full checklist.You should be aware that the MOT certificate is not a guarantee of the general mechanical condition of your car – you should have your car serviced regularly to maintain its mechanical condition.

Should your vehicle need a little help to pass the test, you can rest assured that almost all repairs can be carried out on site on the same day. Any repairs and charges will be notified to you upfront, so no nasty surprises!

Q. What can I do to make sure my car passes?

Many failures we see every day could be prevented by drivers carrying out some simple checks before bringing their vehicle in. Common avoidable faults include light bulbs, tyre condition and pressure, mirrors, wipers and washers. See our tips on how to make sure your car passes its MOT first time.

Q. What documents do I need to bring?

If your vehicle is undergoing its first MOT then a V5C vehicle registration certificate (log book) is required, this document is also required if your vehicle has had a change of registration plate since its last MOT. In all other instances no documentation is required.

Q. What happens if my car fails?

If your car fails, it must be repaired and retested. You cannot legally drive your car on the road until the repairs have been made and a certificate issued. Most repairs can be carried out onsite at the test centre on the same day, and we will always advise you upfront about any work that needs to be done.

Q. Is there a charge for a retest?

If you choose to have your car repaired elsewhere, you can take it back to the original testing centre for a partial retest within 10 days of the initial test. You will be charged a partial retest fee of £14.99. If you bring your car back after 10 working days, you will be charged for a full MOT.An explanation of retest fees can be found on the DVSA’s website:

Q. What if I disagree with the decision?

If your vehicle fails and you wish to appeal against the decision you should ask the testing station for a complaint form. If your appeal is successful the fee or part of it will be returned, but you should not have your vehicle repaired before the appeal is considered as any change may affect the outcome of the appeal.
