  • Tyres: Check all the tyres are inflated to the correct pressure, and there is at least 1.6mm of tread across the 3/4 of the tyre.
  • Lights: Check that the following lights are working correctly: front position lights (aka side lights), headlights, rear lights, rear registration plate light, rear fog lamps, headlamps, brake lights and indicator lights. Check all bulbs are working even when light is tapped lightly with a hand and check and lens/casing is not cracked. Pay particular attention to the rear registration plate light as this is difficult to check in daylight, make sure both bulbs are functioning correctly.
  • Hazard Lights: Check all indicator lights flash when the hazard light switch is selected. Check with the ignition on and off.
  • Horn: check this sounds correctly and is not a two tone type horn.
  • Registration Plate: Check that is not cracked, securely fastened and not obscured. Also ensure the letters are of the correct size and spacing.
  • Vehicle Identification Number: Check the car has a Vehicle Identification Number displayed.
  • Windscreen: Check for chips and cracks in the windscreen. In an area in front of the driver a chip cannot be bigger than 10mm, in other areas swept by the wipers that damage cannot be more than 40mm.
  • Wipers and Washers: Make sure the wipers are not damaged and the washer bottle is full of liquid.
  • Mirrors: Mirrors should be fitted where required, usable and not damaged.
  • Seats: Check the front seats secure. Front and rear seat backs can be secured in the upright position.
  • Seat belts: Check all the seat belts fasten and unfasten correctly and are not damaged.


  • What types of vehicle do you MOT?

    Cars and small vans (Class 4).

  • What documents do I need to bring?

    If your vehicle is undergoing its first MOT then a V5C vehicle registration certificate (log book) is required, this document is also required if your vehicle has had a change of registration plate since its last MOT. In all other instances no documentation is required.

  • What happens if my car fails?

    If your car fails, it must be repaired and retested. You cannot legally drive your car on the road until the repairs have been made and a certificate issued. Most repairs can be carried out onsite at the test centre on the same day, and we will always advise you upfront about any work that needs to be done..
