What happens if my car fails the MOT test?
All repair work can be quoted for and carried out by our experienced technicians. However, of course, you are welcome to take the car away and either carry out the repair yourself or have it attended to at another garage and we will be happy to carry out a free MOT re-test within 10 working days of the failed test. Outside of those 10 working days a full test will have to be carried out again which will be chargeable at our normal MOT test price (unfortunately the time restriction is controlled by the DVSA not by ourselves).

Will you supply me with an MOT test certificate?
Yes, although all details of the MOT are now stored online you will still get a certificate.
What do I need to bring with me on the day of my MOT?
Just the car, no paperwork is needed so don’t worry about hunting around for your old certificate!
