MOT tests can be carried out up to one calendar month in advance of the expiry date without affecting the renewal date (i.e. if your car passes it’s MOT test exactly one month before the old MOT certificate expires, your new MOT will last one year and one month). Our MOT testing is by appointment and can be carried out while you wait. You will need to give your old test certificate to reception when dropping off the vehicle. If it is the vehicle’s first MOT test, bring your V5 document instead. We can also carry out interim and major car servicing and car repairs at the same time, as well as an air conditioning recharge!
