“I’m always on the go, so booking my MOT on my phone was really useful.
I compared garages, picked the best one for me and even saved money, all whilst waiting for my morning coffee!”
“Once at garage for service everything was perfect. Had a small issue with one female receptionist when confirming date of service as received conflicting dates and she was reluctant to accept any responsibility but this was resolved. Well done to everyone and Merry Christmas. Will book next year's service with you.”
“I was happy with the work, the fact they took the time and followed the notes given. They assessed the additional work requested, gave the best course of action and did the work at a very good price. Prior to booking at this garage I booked with main dealer, the additional work and price gouging led me to cancel with them, which led me to book with Hylton MOT Centre, who were great.”
“Their service is satisfying and they are nice people”

If your car is due an MOT in Sunderland, you must book an appointment as soon as possible to ensure you don't miss the expiry date. The MOT is a legal requirement for all 3+-year-old-vehicles in the UK as it checks whether yours meets road safety and environmental standards. 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 repairs after a failed test or to a pre-booked MOT appointment. You must be able to prove this if stopped and questioned.
Make sure you avoid the risk of missing your test date by booking your MOT well in advance using our comparison tool. Plus, the MOT cost will vary for each Sunderland MOT centre, so this is a great way to save money and ensure you are getting the best deal.

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.
If your MOT is overdue you must book a test immediately. It is illegal to drive on public roads in and around Sunderland without a valid MOT certificate.
You can book an MOT online today by entering your vehicle registration and postcode into our comparison site.
You can only drive your car after a failed MOT if:
You must not drive your car after a failed MOT if it doesn’t meet the above requirements.
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.
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.
