Our qualified, experienced technicians can carry out a full MOT test or service on private or commercial vehicles. And because they are not in the business of fixing cars you can be sure to get an honest, unbiased test carried out to the highest standards.
A test costs ¬£40 for cars (Class 4) and ¬£45 for light commercial vehicles over 3,000kg (Classes 5 and 7). If your vehicle fails the test, they will re-test this free of charge if it is within 10 working days, otherwise it will cost you the test fee again.
They are a fully authorised VOSA testing station (test station number V107514). The council‚Äôs specialist mechanics ensure vehicles are inspected to the highest standards and issued with an MOT certificate (if the vehicle meets all the appropriate checks) with as little hassle as possible.
The MOT and Servicing station is open from 7am-3.30pm Monday to Thursday and 7am to 3pm on Friday‚Äôs. For more information or to book an MOT please telephone 01246 593043.
