What is an MOT?

Every vehicle in the UK is legally required to have an annual MOT test. This is to ensure that it is roadworthy and up to UK safety standards.

At Performance Car Specialist Ltd we can locate and repair any MOT-essential systems in your vehicle, so it has the best chance of passing its MOT first time.

What will you check?

Our MOT team will thoroughly check your vehicle for proper legal operation of:

  • Lighting and signalling
  • Brakes
  • Suspension
  • Body
  • Tyres
  • Emissions
  • Steering
  • Structure
  • Seatbelts

By getting us to check these things prior to the MOT test, you can save on the cost of potential retests. You can also help avoid any fails on the vehicle's record, which aids with reselling.

How do I book?

We can arrange a booking for your car or van's MOT - just call us and speak to our team. Should any repairs be required, these can be carried out once we’ve agreed a quote with you.

If we carry out the repairs, there is no retest fee. We can also provide you with an MOT reminder to ensure your car's MOT doesn't expire.

Do all cars need MOTs?

Yes, however new cars do not require an MOT for the first 3 years from the date of purchase. This is due to rise to 4 years soon.
