Compare MOT Garages in Cardiff & Book Your MOT Before the Expiry Date to Avoid a Fine 

If your car is due an MOT test in Cardiff, you must book an appointment before the expiry date. Every vehicle over 3 years old must have a valid MOT certificate at all times, else you can be prosecuted if caught driving on the roads without one. An MOT test checks whether your car meets the road safety and environmental standards.

You can only drive your car without an MOT if you are driving it to a garage for repairs 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.

Enter your vehicle reg and postcode to compare instant prices and book the best deal on your MOT in Cardiff.
