How can BookMyGarage help me save on my MOT?

The purpose of BookMyGarage is to show you the best MOT, Car Servicing and Repair deals in your local area from our directory of over 8,500 UK garages. When you select ‘MOT’, enter your car registration number and post code, our system provides you with instant prices from all of the garages near you.

You have access to a wealth of information on all of the garages listed. You’ll find out which accreditations they have and which schemes they are members of, which cars they work on, their MOT price and much more.

Need an MOT test centre with a child-friendly waiting room, or want to know if you’ll be able to grab some refreshments while you wait? You can find that out too.

Perhaps most importantly you’ll find the opening times of your chosen garage and you’ll get a fixed price quote, plus a chance to make a booking right here on the site. You won’t pay a penny until the work is done.

Unlike some of our competitors, BookMyGarage will not make you wait for garages to send you quotes, instead we show you instant prices so that you can quickly compare prices and book online…in less than 1 minute! This means that you can book any time, even when the garage is closed. So, when you book your MOT, service or repairs through BookMyGarage you can be assured that you are getting the best value, having considered all of your available options.

We highly recommend booking your car in for a service at the same time as your MOT. Many of our garages offer discounted rates for MOTs when booked alongside a service; some for just 1p! Why do the garages offer this? They actually save time when both are booked together, hence why they’re able to charge so little. The garages also want to encourage you to book your service with them and not with one of their competitors. So this is a win-win for the garage and for you!

Find MOT Garages near you; compare prices and book online, from the comfort of your own home, with BookMyGarage.

Use our MOT booking tool to check when your MOT is due, compare cheap prices, read through customer reviews and make your booking. Don’t pay a penny until the work is done!

So, is your car due an MOT test? The test will check whether your car meets the road safety and environmental standards, and you will be prosecuted if driving on the roads when your MOT has expired. The only exception to this rule is if you are driving it to a garage to be repaired or to a pre-booked MOT test. Make sure you avoid the risk of missing your test date by booking your MOT well in advance using our comparison tool; the MOT cost will vary for each garage so this is a great way to save money and ensure you are booking a cheap MOT.

Use the MOT comparison tool to get instant prices in your local area. It’s the simplest way to learn more about the garages in your area and get high quality servicing and repairs.

Our directory features thousands of MOT test centres across the country and you can search for them by postcode or by selecting an area from the list below. This will provide you with a list of garages and you can choose any of them to visit their profile page and find out everything you need to know before booking the MOT.

Book MOT: To book your MOT, you just need to pick a garage, select ‘View & Book’, select any other services that you want to book (did you know that you could save time and money if you book your service at the same time as your MOT?), choose a date & time, provide your phone number so that the garage can contact you if needed and complete the booking. No payment is required until the work is done, at which point you will pay the garage directly.

What does an MOT cost?

The official maximum MOT price that test centres can charge for a car is £54.85, but many will charge less than this. Many garages also offer special discounts for customers who book a service at the same time.

Booking your MOT through BookMyGarage ensures that you can get the best price, while also booking a garage that you know you can trust.

Why Do I Need To Book an MOT?

The Ministry of Transport Test, or as it is much better known, the MOT test is an essential annual check of your car. Without a valid MOT certificate, your car is illegal and you can be fined up to £1,000 if caught by a police patrol, or one of the many static cameras around the country. Most car insurance cover will also be void if the car doesn’t have a valid MOT certificate. There are also other fines which can amount up to £10,000 if your car is not road-worthy, such as defective brakes and illegal tyres. These offences will also result in points being added to your license. The MOT test will flag up any of these issues and your car will not pass the test until it is road-legal again.
