MOT Testing Leighton Buzzard

An MOT is an annual test designed to ensure the roadworthiness of every vehicle on the road. Those vehicles more than three years old are required to have yearly tests undertaken.

The MOT test covers some of the following aspects of a vehicle: exhaust and emissions, steering, tyres, wheels and more.

All Makes of Car, Van & Motorhome

From our location in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire, we have been offering professional MOT testing services for all models of cars and vans for decades throughout the local areas including Dunstable and Aylesbury.

Over the years, we have been heavily focusing on our customer care and always keep our customers updated as to any work that needs to be carried out before proceeding with repairs.

Why do I need an MOT?

In the UK, an MOT is a legal requirement for any motorised road vehicle over 3 years old (4 years old in Northern Ireland).

But, apart from the legal obligation, an MOT test is the ideal, annual opportunity for you to find out if your vehicle has any safety issues that need seeing to, or that could require attention in the near future.

What type of safety issues does an MOT check?

Your MOT will cover a wide range of safety aspects of your vehicle, such as:

Steering and Suspension – Checking for corrosion and general condition, whether they’re in working order and fluid levels are correct

Tyres – To ensure the tread is at the legal depth, that the tyres aren’t damaged and that they’re the correct tyres for the vehicle.

Brakes – A check to ensure your brakes are in good working order, that they haven’t been modified and that brake fluid levels are correct.

Seatbelts – This is to check all your seatbelts work, that they’re not damaged and that they’re the correct type of seatbelt for the vehicle.

If you’d like to know about the various other safety checks carried out during your MOT, simply ask one of our team when you book in for your MOT, or visit the GOV.UK website for more information.
