Why Use BookMyGarage to Book a MOT?

With BookMyGarage, you’re always in control. We’ve helped over 15.5 million drivers compare prices through our comparison site, enabling them to book the best deal on their MOT, service or repair. And, with thousands of 5* reviews on Trustpilot, drivers clearly love the choice we provide.

When you need a trustworthy MOT centre near you, we’ll help you find it. Garages' reviews are verified and unfiltered, allowing you to make an informed choice - and every garage sets and updates their prices themselves, so you’ll never pay more than you expect (unless you agree to additional repair work with them directly).

Here are some of the other ways we’ll help you choose your perfect test centre:

 

Clear Communication Throughout. After you make your booking, we’ll never leave you in the dark. Not only do we provide a confirmation email ourselves, but we also pass your contact details on to your chosen garage. This means they can keep in touch throughout the process. They may send you a confirmation email themselves and will contact you whenever there is a development with your MOT near you. That way, you get the peace of mind you deserve.

Honest Reviews & Ratings. See what like-minded drivers have to say about every garage on our comparison site to help inform your decision. Always unfiltered and unedited for transparency.

24/7 Online Booking. When you need an MOT, you want to book it as soon as possible. You don’t want to wait around for the garage to open so you can call up and get it sorted - and with BookMyGarage, you don’t have to. We allow you to make your appointment day or night, even when the garage is closed.

Plenty of Choice. We may recommend certain MOT centres depending on your location, but you always have the final say. There are thousands of fast-fit, independent and franchised garages on our online comparison site, so you’re able to see all your options and choose the best one for you.

 

Compare deals and save up to 70% on your car maintenance when you choose one of the lower-cost options through BookMyGarage. Enter your vehicle reg and postcode to compare instant prices on your MOT near you and book the best deal today.

 

How to Book an MOT

  1. Enter your vehicle reg and postcode.
  2. Compare deals. You can sort local MOT centres by whatever best suits your needs: price, distance, reviews and ratings or availability.
  3. Pick a date and time for your appointment.

 

After you book your vehicle's MOT, we send you a confirmation email with a summary of your booking. We also contact the garage who may also contact you to confirm or ask for extra details.

You never pay for your booking until after all the work has been completed and deal with the garage directly after the initial booking process. You also have the ability to change or cancel your booking for free until the day of your appointment.

What If I'm Looking to Rebook an MOT?

You only need to rebook an MOT test if you took your vehicle away from the original test centre for repairs and didn't return for the retest within 10 days. We would advise contacting your chosen test centre directly to ensure they have availability to get you in for an MOT retest, especially if your expiry date is approaching.

In most cases, you won't need to rebook an MOT as the garage will complete all the repairs and retest your vehicle as part of the process.

Other Ways to Book an MOT Test

Many local test centres offer an 'MOT while you wait' service by default, which allows you to watch your vehicle during the test from the comfort of an on-site waiting room and enjoy some refreshments. If this doesn't work for you, you may be able to add collection and delivery or another convenience option during the booking process.

That's why we offer a range of additional MOT options to make your life as easy as possible.

With BookMyGarage, you can compare deals & save on the following:

 

Either head to the landing page linked above to see pre-filtered results for your chosen option, or enter your reg and postcode above and choose the corresponding product/click the corresponding filter on the left-hand side of the results page.

 

How Much Does an MOT Cost in the UK?

According to data taken from bookings made through BookMyGarage.com, the average price of an MOT is £37.74. This means that bookings made through our comparison site are over £19 (35%) cheaper, on average, than the maximum UK price of £54.85.

Mobile MOT Near You

While a mobile mechanic near you can't complete an MOT on your driveway, they can make your life easier by transporting your car to a local test centre and returning it once the test is complete. 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.

Do Electric Vehicles Need an MOT?

An electric car needs an MOT, just like any petrol or diesel car (ICE). It is a vital check that ensures your vehicle is safe and roadworthy for the year ahead and you nust book one every year once your electric car turns 3 years old.

However, there are a few differences between an EV MOT and the test petrol and diesel vehicles sit.

You can book an MOT for your electric car through BookMyGarage.com. Just enter your reg and postcode to instantly compare EV-qualified MOT centres near you and book an appointment with the best one.

 

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.

Enter your vehicle reg and postcode into our online comparison site to compare and save on your next MOT booking today.
