We are located just 10 minutes from Derby and 5 minutes from Belper. Our MOT Testing is arranged to suit you, so we have a range of  services including:









  • £35.00 for an MOT test
  • Free re-test within 10 working days of the original test
  • While you wait MOT testing (1hr max)
  • Optional evening MOT testing (these slots book up weeks in advance, please plan in advance)
  • Weekend MOT testing (these slots book up weeks in advance, please plan in advance)
  • FREE Collect and drop off

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 are a 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.

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 an MOT test with us please call Emma on 01332 882727 or complete the enquiry form in the right sidebar of this page.

Our while you wait service for MOT testing is a convenient way get 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.


Testimonials:MOT Testing

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 & Ritchie
