MOT is a Government-mandated annual test that assesses your vehicle's roadworthiness based on several parameters and ensures there are no underlying issues that can jeopardise your driving safety. The test is currently regulated by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), formed in the year 2014, which has a series of guidelines that all MOT testing centres must strictly abide by.

Key checks included in an MOT
Our experts will first a check your vehicle’s MOT history to identify any recurring performance issue. There are several checks conducted in MOT Nechells. Some of the most crucial checks are mentioned below:
We conduct a detailed inspection of your vehicle's braking system to check if all its components, like the brake pads, discs, callipers, rotors, etc., are in their optimal shape. Furthermore, we also check the brake fluids to verify if it is within the recommended level.
- Exhaust & emission
Our experts will inspect every part of your car’s exhaust system which includes, the catalytic converter, muffler, tailpipe, oxygen sensors, etc., and ensure there are no underlying damages. We also check the emission level to confirm whether it is free from SO2 and NO2 and meets the required environment-friendly standards.
We also check whether the tread depth of your vehicle's tyres meets the legal minimum of 1.6 mm. Further, our experts will check if there are damages on the main treads or sidewalls of the tyres.
Apart from these, our MOT check Nechells also includes inspection of other parts, like:
- Horn and number plates
- Body structure
- External and internal lights
- Suspension, etc.
In case all your vehicle components meet the required parameters prescribed by DVSA, we will issue a VT20 “pass” certificate validating its roadworthiness for the next one year. If not, we will provide a VT30 certificate which will enlist details of all the failures and dangers associated with them (categorised as dangerous, major and minor faults).
If your car fails the check, you need to get all issues repaired asap. Unless your previous MOT is still valid, you are not allowed to drive the vehicle until all repairs are done and a partial re-test has been carried out.
You can rely on us for affordable post-MOT repairs and replacements such that it passes the retest without any hassle.
