Book Your Car Into an MOT Garage in Edinburgh Before the Expiry Date to Avoid a Fine

If your car is due an MOT test, you must book an appointment at an Edinburgh MOT centre before the expiry date to avoid any problems. The test will check whether your car meets the road safety and environmental standards, and you will be prosecuted if driving on the roads around Edinburgh 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 MOT centre in Edinburgh so this is a great way to save money and ensure you are booking a cheap MOT.

FAQs

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 and around Edinburgh without a valid MOT certificate.

You can book an MOT online today by entering your vehicle registration and postcode into our comparison site.

 

Should I Book an MOT and Service in Edinburgh at the Same Time?

You can see several benefits when you book your MOT and service in Edinburgh at the same time. These include:

 

Convenience. Booking an MOT and service in Edinburgh at the same time means your car gets the right maintenance without you finding time for separate appointments. This keeps your car on the road for longer and ensures your life stays on track. 

Lower Cost. When you book an MOT and service at the same time, you may be able to secure an even lower price. Many garages offer an MOT discount when you combine it with a car service. Plus, the more thorough the service, the bigger the discount can be. Compare garages in Edinburgh to see how much you can save on your car maintenance.

Reduced Chance of Breaking Down. An MOT pass certificate ensures that your car is legal for the year to come, but booking a car service at the same time offers even greater peace of mind. It is far more detailed than the MOT test, so you get a better picture of your vehicle’s condition if you book them both at the same time.

 

If you’re looking for the above benefits from your car maintenance, then you should book an MOT and service in Edinburgh at the same time. Enter your reg and postcode to compare garages near you and book the best deal.

 

What Documents Do I Need to Take to My MOT and Service?

You don’t need to bring any documents to your MOT and service appointment. However, there are a few things you may wish to have handy to make your booking as smooth as possible. 

Previously, you needed to bring the previous year’s MOT certificate, your car’s logbook (V5C) and other letters and documents. All this information is now online and available to all licenced UK MOT testers. This means that you don’t need to show any documents on the day of your appointment.

You may wish to bring or do the following things on the day of your appointment:

  1. Make sure your locking wheel nut key is accessible. This will help the technician remove your car’s wheels if necessary.
  2. Remove any clutter from your boot and the back seats. This will allow access to the spare wheel and make it easier to test the rear seatbelts and seats.
  3. Bring your car’s service book and/or logbook (V5C). The technician may record details of your service in your service book as well as on other paperwork.

 

Is it Cheaper to Book an MOT and Service in Edinburgh at the Same Time?

Many Edinburgh MOT centres 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.
