If your car is due an MOT test, you must book an appointment as soon as possible. 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.

Located around the shores of the River Avon and the Severn Estuary, Bristol is a culturally diverse, socially abuzz, alternative and independent city. Small wonder that in 2014 The Times named it the best city in the UK to live. It’s also one of the sunniest.
Bristol is famous for Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s Clifton Suspension Bridge, which is well worth a visit if you don’t happen to drive across it on your way into the city. There is a small toll on this Grade I listed structure which forms part of the B3129. But if you suffer from vertigo don’t look down, the deep drop to the River Avon and Gorge is spectacular and changes with the tide.
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.
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.
An MOT can cost as much as £54.85, but many MOT centres in Bristol set their prices lower to encourage more customers to choose them. While you can pay less than the £54.85 for a class 4 test, you will never pay more as it is a fixed upper limit as set by the UK Government.
Class 4 covers all cars and light commercial vehicles registered in the UK.
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.
An MOT is valid for 12 months. This is calculated from the date of your test to the exact same date the following year.
If you book your MOT early, it becomes valid for up to 13 months (the 12 months from your expiry date this year to the following year, plus up to an additional 30 days. This depends on how early you booked your MOT).
If your MOT is overdue you must book a test at a Bristol MOT centre immediately. It is illegal to drive on public roads in the UK without a valid MOT certificate.
You can book an MOT online today by entering your vehicle registration and postcode into our booking widget.
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.
You can see several benefits if you get an MOT and service in Bristol at the same time. These include:
Convenience. Rather than finding time for separate garage appointments, you can combine this vital car maintenance into one. This means that your car spends more time on the road and you keep your life on track.
Cost-Effective. Many garages offer an MOT discount if you combine it with a car service. The more thorough the service, the bigger the discount can be. This allows you to keep your car safe and in top condition for less.
Decreased Chance of a Breakdown. Knowing that your car meets the legal limits of safety and roadworthiness gives you peace of mind, but a service is far more detailed than the MOT test. If you get the two done at the same time, you get a better picture of the condition of your vehicle. Plus, you get the knowledge that it is less likely to break down or need expensive repairs any time soon.
If you’re looking to achieve all the above, then you should get an MOT and a car service at the same time. Enter your reg and postcode to compare garages in Bristol and find the best deal.
Many garages in Bristol offer a discount on their MOT price when you book a car service at the same time. That means booking an MOT and service together can make it much cheaper to keep your vehicle in good condition - so long as you choose a garage that offers a great deal.
