Mobile MOT Near You

Plus, if your vehicle needs repair work, they may be able to complete this at a time and place that best suits you to make your life as easy as possible.

Why Do I Need to Book an MOT?

The MOT is a yearly legal requirement for all cars aged 3 or older in the UK. Failure to book a test before your vehicle’s expiry date can lead to police prosecution and invalidated car insurance.

If caught without a valid MOT, you can receive a substantial fine if your car is also unroadworthy. These offences will also result in points being added to your license. The test will identify any of these issues and your car will not pass until it is road-legal.

Make sure you avoid the risk and book your MOT online today. You can book your MOT up to a year in advance or sign up for MOT reminders. This will help you avoid missing the date in the future. We will inform you when your expiry date is fast approaching so that you can book in plenty of time.


What Are the Benefits of Booking an MOT Near Me?

There are several benefits to booking an MOT at a local test centre if you’re wondering “does it make a difference if the MOT garage is near me or not?”.

When you choose a cheap MOT at a local garage, your journey will generally be shorter and the location convenient to your home or your workplace.

It also makes it easier to fit your MOT into your normal life. If you choose a local MOT centre, you may know a nearby supermarket or coffee shop where you can wait for the test to be completed. Alternatively, you can drop your car off on your way home and walk the rest of the way. This allows you to save money on travel costs as well.
