Find An MOT Garage in Portsmouth & Book An Appointment Before Your Expiry Date To Avoid a Hefty Fine

If your car is due an MOT test, you must book an appointment at a Portsmouth test centre before it expires. The test will check whether your car meets road safety and environmental standards, and you will be prosecuted if driving on the roads around Portsmouth when your MOT has expired.

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 in Portsmouth.
