    Useful Fact – Did you know you can have your MOT done up to 30 days prior to the expiry date of your current MOT certificate, the extra days will then be added on to your new MOT certificate.

    To show that they are roadworthy, vehicles over three years old must by law pass a yearly MOT test. An MOT test involves a series of checks on vehicle covering a whole range of areas, including lights, steering, brake, tyres and much more, even number plates. An MOT doesn’t, however, inspect the engine, clutch or gearbox.

    Nearly two in five MOT tests fail first time. Yet often this is because of minor faults that you could easily have fixed beforehand. A failure can be the result of some simple reasons that are easy to avoid, such as screen wash not being topped up or if warning lights are lit up on the dashboard display. If you are ever unsure if an item would be a failure, feel free to give us a call and we will advise you over the phone.

    Getting your MOT carried out by The kilburn Garage is as painless as can be. Where possible we will pick up your car from work or home (if you are within our collect and return area), carry out your test and then return the vehicle to the same location. It’s as simple as that! If your car is tested and fails we will give you an estimate before we carry out any further work. You can also be sure that we will treat you fairly as we are members of the Trading Standards approved code of practice. To book in for your £20 MOT test, please call Emma on 01332 882727 or head to the contact us page.

    Our while you wait service for MOT testing is a convenient way of getting your MOT done. Ideally we like to make appointments for MOT tests to ensure we can complete the work as quickly as possible.
    We are open until 5.30pm Monday through to Friday. We make sure our waiting area is clean and warm where you can enjoy complementary drinks or make use of our complementary WIFI while you wait.

  • We Are Now Offering Free Winter Checks

    Why do we check these areas…

    YBX3086_Yuasa_Car_BatteryBattery failure is more common in the winter months for a number of reasons. The colder the temperature gets, the slower the chemical reactions within the battery hence reduced performance. During the winter we naturally use more electrical components such as heating and lights which place additional demands on the battery.

    512Tyres are essential in keeping you safe on the roads especially during the winter months with the risk of snow and ice. Part of our free winter safety check will include an inspection of your tyres overall condition, tread depth and pressure.

    Engine_coolantYour antifreeze level should be checked regularly to avoid causing serious damage to your engine. During the winter months, it is essential to check your anti-freeze levels as water alone can freeze rendering your coolant system useless.

    advice-centre-led-car-bulbsEnsuring your vehicle’s lights are working correctly is critical for your own safety and other road users as it allows you to be able to see and help others to see you. Having a faulty or damaged bulb is illegal so make sure you check these on a regular basis.

    wiperbladesShorter days and bad weather mean that visibility on the road is even more important. Therefore part of our free safety check includes inspecting your wiper blades to ensure they are free of splits and damage. We also check the operation of your windscreen wash system and top up your screen wash.

    To book in for your FREE winter check please call Emma on Derby 882727.

    Sophie – Thank you so much for squeezing us in, and for a brilliant, quick, efficient MOT for our Nissan Juke today. Thank you also to Andy for all his help on the phone last week explaining the different services available, what the differences are, and was totally honest in telling me we didn’t need the full service, only an interim service, when I didn’t have a clue! Big thank you for restoring my faith and trust in garages after being ripped off for years by a national chain (with an orange logo!). Will definitely be back and have already got you two new customers by word of mouth today. Thank you! Sophie & Ritchiecar_with_tree_on_top_decoration

    Ronni – A big thank you guys for truly going above and beyond. Not only you fixed the car with such a short notice but you also went the “extra mile” or 6 🙂 by giving me a lift for work… really appreciate it

    Nicola – Love the amazing service I get from Emma and the team year after year!! I wouldn’t trust another garage with my car! 5⭐️ service and very affordable prices 😊- – – Taken from our facebook page
