“I’m always on the go, so booking my MOT on my phone was really useful.
I compared garages, picked the best one for me and even saved money, all whilst waiting for my morning coffee!”
“I’m happy with the service I received, I opted for collection and delivery with a full service and MOT. Although my car needed work to be done the garage were punctual on collecting and helpful in explaining the work and cost needed. There was no pressure and staff I spoke to were friendly each time I spoke to the garage. I needed my car back by a certain time and my car was dropped off an hour earlier than I was told. I feel that the service made the visit a lot less stressful.”
“I booked this to change oil and filter it's great in every way 👍”
“Use The Garage to service and maintain all of the cars in our household. Would recommend without hesitation”

Birmingham, the region’s major city, is the second most populous in the country, so drivers will have a range of providers to choose from, making BookMyGarage’s service even more useful.

At the geographical heart of England, the West Midlands commonly experiences sharp winter frosts and occasionally very hot summer days. During the winter months heavy rain and snow showers can cause problems for drivers.
Good news for motorists in the West Midlands: these are the safest and most improved roads in the UK. The risk of death and serious injury is lowest here across single carriageway A roads. However, you may not get to your destination as quickly as you’d like; the greater Birmingham area ranks fourth in the UK for congestion. In terms of motorways, the M6 is currently ranked Britain’s worst motorway for tailbacks; this has led to the creation of a Toll Section which now runs for 27 miles from Junction 3a all the way round the North East of the West Midlands, rejoining the M6 at Junction 11a. A car travelling the M6 Toll Road on a weekday costs £5.50; you can pay by cash, card or Tag (an electronic prepayment system).
An MOT test, or Ministry of Transport Test, is an essential annual vehicle check to assess roadworthiness and safety standards. It ensures all vehicles on UK roads are maintained to a certain standard, improving road safety standards in the process.
If your MOT is overdue you must book a test immediately. It is illegal to drive on public roads in and around the West Midlands without a valid MOT certificate.
You can book an MOT online today by entering your vehicle registration and postcode into our comparison site.
An MOT usually takes between 45 and 60 minutes. Many garages offer an ‘MOT-while-you-wait’ service with waiting rooms and refreshments onsite.
If your car fails and needs extra repairs, it will take a lot longer. The test centre will be able to give you a time estimate based on the severity of your repairs.
You can book your MOT as early as you want, but most people choose to book it up to a month, minus a day, before the expiry date. This allows you to complete the same expiry date for the following year. For example, if your car was registered on the 1st of September, you could book your MOT between 2nd August and 1st September to keep the same expiry date.
If you book your MOT early, you get more time to fix any faults and ensure your car is still legal to drive on UK roads. However, if you book your MOT earlier than a month in advance, the expiry date will become the date of your most recent test.
You do not need to take anything except your car to an MOT test. The tester will use the DVSA database to find your existing MOT details and any other information they may need about your car.
You may wish to provide a locking wheel nut in case any repairs are needed to the wheels or tyres.
