Great service

For: Midland Automotive Group

“Picked my car up from my house and dropped it back off for free, came with card machine so I didn't have to go to the garage. Saved me so much time, very convenient. Very friendly, called me to tell me of my advisories and some lamps that needed changing and sorted them for me. Was booked quite last minute but they could accommodate me and great prices! Would use them again!”

Avoid an Unnecessary Fine By Booking Your Car Into an MOT Garage in Derby Before the Expiry Date

Is your car due an MOT test? If so, you must book an appointment at a MOT centre in Derby before the expiry date to avoid a significant fine. The test will check whether your car meets the road safety and environmental standards, and you will be prosecuted if driving a car with an expired MOT. The only exception to this rule is 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.

What is an MOT Test?

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.


What Do I Do if My MOT is Overdue?

If your MOT is overdue you must book a test 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 comparison site.


Is it Cheaper to Book an MOT and Service Together?

Many MOT centres in Derby 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.


Can I Get an MOT and Service in Derby at the Same Time?

Many test centres in Derby allow you to book your MOT and service at the same time. In fact, you receive several benefits when you do. 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 Derby and find the best deal.


Is an MOT Included in a Full Service?

A full service does not include an MOT. They are different aspects of car maintenance and so you must book them separately.

You must book an MOT every 12 months by law after your vehicle turns 3 years old. It is a check designed to test your vehicle’s safety and roadworthiness and to highlight any serious faults that your car may have. If your vehicle fails, you must complete the repairs before you can drive the car home.

A full service is a routine health check for your vehicle. It highlights the parts that are suffering from excessive wear and tear and helps to avoid serious problems from developing as a result. What’s more, it is the best way to keep your car in good condition. We recommend booking a full service every 12 months or 12,000 miles.

In short, a full car service includes actual maintenance, whereas the MOT is just a visual check with a pass/fail outcome.


What Do I Need to Take To An MOT 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.
