Pass Your CAR MOT in Wakefield

As an official car MOT garage, we can provide a hassle-free, cost effective MOT test for your car without sacrificing on service. 

Book Your Same Day MOT Test

We aim to complete all of our car MOT tests in a day. In most cases, we can turn your MOT check around within an hour and promptly provide you with your MOT certificate. 

However, as a preferred MOT test centre for both the people of Wakefield and many of its car dealerships, we do get swamped. So, we do advise that you give us a call first. If you choose to wait while we complete the work then you can drop your car off with us and nip across the road to Morrisons or McDonald’s. 

While we do offer while you wait MOT tests in Wakefield, we do find that most of our customers prefer something less disruptive to their day. So, they choose to use our free collection and delivery service, where we pick up your car at an agreed time and drop it back once the work is done.

Let us help your car pass it’s MOT today!

What's Involved with a CAR MOT Check?

 An MOT involves dozens of checks on your car, ranging from the brakes and fuel system to lights, mirrors, seat belts, windscreen wipers and exhaust system. It doesn’t cover the condition of the engine, clutch or gearbox. 

Under the MOT guidelines introduced in May 2018 you’re car MOT pass can be categorised as any of the following:

  1. Pass
  2. Advisory Pass
  3. Minor Pass.

And, your MOT fail can fall under either:

  1. Major Fail (repair it)
  2. Dangerous Fail (no driving it without immediate repair).

How often should your car MOT be done?

0
Every Year (once it turns 3 years old)

That is with the exception of some vehicles over 40 years old. According to MOT Rule Changes in May 2018 if your vehicle was registered, or made, over 40 years ago then you may no longer require an MOT. Ask us if you’re not sure?

Don’t forget, an MOT certificate confirms at the time of the test that your car met the minimum road safety and environmental standards required by law. To keep your car roadworthy you still need regular servicing. As we are an MOT and Service garage we can offer you a combined MOT check and Service in Wakefield on the same day!
