What does an MOT check involve?
During the MOT test, one of our mechanics will conduct a comprehensive inspection of the vehicle, including the interior, exterior, under the bonnet and under the chassi/bike frame. An MOT test does not include checking the engine, gearbox or clutch.
The result of each check is recorded. If the vehicle passes a VT20, a ‘pass’ certificate is issued. Items that are not quite a failure, but might need some attention in the near future, are noted as ‘advisory’ items.

What happens if your car fails the MOT test
If the vehicle fails to meet the required standard, a VT30 ‘failure’ document is issued. When a vehicle fails an MOT, it must be repaired to comply with the test standards before it can be driven again. Click here Wcarey-MOT-Infographic (1) to see some common reasons for MOT fails.
If you feel the result of the test is unfair, you can appeal the decision. Ask for a VT17 form which explains the process you need to follow.
Whichever type of vehicle you drive, we will deliver the highest standard of MOT testing so you can leave our garage with absolute confidence that it is safe and fully roadworthy.
