MOT Auto Centre are proud to trade as a VOSA approved MOT centre in Swindon. We welcome motorists in the Wiltshire region to visit our local, independent, family-run garage for trusted MOT testing services. Our team is trained to carry out MOTs on all makes and models of cars, including light commercial vehicles.
We have a fully equipped workshop and dedicated bays that are solely used for vehicle inspections. This means we can cater for a wide range of vehicles and are able to offer flexible times for our customers in Swindon and the surrounding areas.
The Ministry of Transport test, known as an MOT, is an annual test required by law to ensure the safety, emission levels and roadworthiness of a vehicle. MOTs are needed for vehicles three years or older, with the exception of some vehicles over forty years old, as of May 2018. Where this is the case, you will be required to declare that your vehicle meets the rules for not needing an MOT every time you tax it.
For motorists in Swindon or the wider Wiltshire areas looking to arrange an MOT, call us today to book your car or light commercial vehicle in at our centre. Our competitively priced MOT tests take 45 minutes to complete and if your car fails on the first inspection, we can fix any faults and provide a free retesting service.
Our fully insured, personable team is on-hand for prompt appointments and we are happy to collect cars for customers within a 5-mile radius of our garage. This can save you time and enables you to have a vehicle inspected with minimum disruption to your day. We can carry out a test up to one month before your current MOT expiry date, as well as same-day appointments subject to availability.
Regular customers in Swindon and Wiltshire are sent reminders when their next MOT is due. Because tests run concurrently, this could give you 13 months of certification.
What Does an MOT Test Involve?
Our MOT tests are carried out in accordance with the latest DVSA guidelines and include an extensive list of inspections to ensure the safety and roadworthiness of your vehicle. Some of the mains components checked before issuing an MOT certificate include:
Steering and Suspension
Windscreen and Wipers
Horn and Brakes
Seats and Seatbelts
Doors and Mirrors
Wheels and Tyres
As of May 2018, new government required checks will also include reversing lights and headlight washers on vehicles first used from 1st September 2009, along with daytime running lights on vehicles first used from 1st March 2018. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information and advice.
Remember, you can be fined up to £1,000 for driving without a valid MOT. Make sure you hold a valid certificate by booking a test at our VOSA approved centre today.
