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.
