MOT Testing - Book Online

An MOT (Ministry of Transport) test is an annual assessment of a car's safety, emissions and roadworthiness, required by law in the UK for any car that is three or more years old to ensure that your vehicle is safe to drive.

MOT checks can only be carried out at garages with technicians that have been officially certified by the DVSA (formerly VOSA). Cars that do not have a valid, up-to-date MOT certificate are not legally allowed to drive on UK roads and may have their insurance invalidated.

Most cars, 4x4s and vans undergo a Class 4 MOT, but motorbikes, goods vehicles (between 3,000-3,500kg) and vehicles with more than 12 seats are tested to different criteria.

An MOT takes around an hour to complete and inspects the following areas:

  • Vehicle Identification Number
  • Lights
  • Steering and Suspension
  • Registration Plate
  • Windscreen, Wipers and Washer Bottles
  • Horn
  • Seatbelts and Seats
  • Mirrors
  • Brakes, Wheels and Tyres
  • Bodywork Doors
  • Fuel System and Emission Levels


MOT failures are caused by issues that are easy to identify and in many cases can be addressed at home, with lighting and signalling issues consistently being the most frequent area of MOT failure (over 30%). Tyre condition and pressure account for 10% of MOT failures, whilst mirrors, wipers and washes are responsible for 8.5% of failures due to obstructing the driver's view of the road.

MOT tests are available from over 147 ATS Euromaster centres nationwide, with convenient hourly appointments available at a time to suit you. To ensure your car's MOT goes as smoothly as possible, we offer a free annual reminder service, online booking and useful MOT tips on how to help your car pass its MOT test.

MOT Re-Testing

Retest after a repair

In some cases your vehicle can have a partial retest for free or a reduced MOT fee.

 

Leaving your vehicle for repair

You only need a partial retest if you leave the vehicle at the test centre for repair and it’s retested within 10 working days. There’s no fee for this.

 

Taking your vehicle away for repairs

You can take your vehicle away if your MOT certificate is still valid.

If your MOT has run out you can take your vehicle to:

  • have the failed defects fixed
  • a pre-arranged MOT test appointment

In both cases, your vehicle still needs to meet the minimum standards of roadworthiness at all times or you can be fined.

 

Taking it back for a retest the next working day

You won’t have to pay again if you take it back to the same test centre before the end of the next working day for a partial retest on one or more of these items:

  • access panels
  • battery
  • bonnet
  • bootlid

Taking it back for a retest within 10 working days

You’ll only need a partial retest if you take the vehicle from the test centre for repairs and take it back within 10 working days. You can be charged a partial retest fee for this.

In all other cases, you’ll need to get a full retest and pay the full MOT test fee again.
