“I was really struggling to find anywhere to do the MOT on my car at 10 days notice. But Town and Country Garage had it done within a few days of me booking it with them. They were very very busy, so I had to ring up to check a few things, but this wasn't a problem, and they were very helpful. I would certainly recommend them.”

Compare Instant Prices From MOT Centres in Exeter and Book Your Appointment Before the Expiry Date to Avoid a Fine

If your car's MOT is due, you must book an appointment at a garage in Exeter before the expiry date to avoid a fine if you're caught driving without one. The only exception to this rule is if you are driving it to a garage for repairs after a failure or to a pre-booked MOT test.

The MOT checks that your car meets the required environmental and safety standards to ensure it is road legal for the year ahead. This is why it is such a vital yearly appointment for every vehicle aged 3 or older.

Make sure you avoid the risk of missing your test date by booking your MOT well in advance using our comparison tool. What's more, the MOT cost will vary for each garage so comparing prices is a great way to save money and ensure you are booking a cheap MOT in Exeter.

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 Exeter without a valid MOT certificate.

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

 

How Much is an MOT in Exeter?

An MOT can cost as much as £54.85, but many test centres 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.

 

Do I Need an MOT?

You will need an MOT, by law, if you drive a vehicle registered three or more years ago. This means that all drivers of vehicles registered in or before 2019 must book an MOT in 2022.

If your car is less than three years old, you do not need an MOT but you can choose to book one if you wish.

 

How Long Does an MOT Take?

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.

 

How Early Can You Do an MOT?

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.
