Compare MOT Centres in Southampton to Find the Perfect One For Your MOT & Avoid a Fine

Is your car due an MOT in Southampton? If so, you must book an appointment before the expiry date to ensure your car is road-legal for the year ahead. The test will check whether your car meets road safety and environmental standards, and you will be prosecuted if caught driving on the roads when your MOT has expired.

The only exception to this rule is if you are driving it to a garage for MOT 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 in Southampton.

Enter your reg and postcode now to compare instant MOT prices & book the best deal online in 3 simple steps.
