“How much should I pay for my MOT?”
How much should your MOT cost? This is a question with many answers. After all, everyone knows that your MOT is an annual legal requirement (after your car turns 3 years old) yet how much you pay can vary massively.
To uncover the answer, firstly let’s explore the price that the Government’s DVSA state and secondly, let’s look at how you can save with your local garage.
The DVSA MOT Price
DVSA’s recommended MOT price
The Driving & Vehicles Standard Agency set the UK guidelines for MOT test prices. So, being a Class 4 MOT Testing Centre I can confirm that the class 4 MOT standard fee is set a £54.85.
Just in case you’re curious about what a Class 4 vehicle is, it includes most cars, vans, taxis and motorcaravans. Although if you’re still unclear, check out our “What MOT Class Do I Need” blog HERE.
But hold on a minute, that seems quite expensive!
Will your MOT always cost this much? The answer is NO, it won’t. For instance, most local MOT testing stations charge less than this. Because the DVSA’s MOT price is set as a maximum national limit, it allows some garages to set a lower rate. So make sure that you shop around, as you will usually find a lower price with a garage that you can trust!
