MOT Testing in Leicester

The MOT test was first introduced in 1960 for cars over 10 years old. In 1967 it was changed to include any cars over 3 years old. Everyone who owns a vehicle must keep it in a roadworthy condition and an MOT test at Big John’s Auto Centre in Leicester ensures that your vehicle meets all road safety and environmental standards.

All cars and vehicles over 3 years old must have a valid MOT certificate as a legal requirement, and failure to do so can result in a £1,000 fine. Should your car not have an MOT then it is classed as non-roadworthy and you will be unable to get both road tax and insurance, and it should not be driven until the MOT test has taken place.

What Does The MOT Test Involve?

Big John’s Auto Centre in Leicester has a dedicated MOT testing station that is readily available. An MOT test doesn’t check the general and mechanical condition of your car but does check some important items to ensure that they meet legal standards.

Included in this is an inspection of your fuel system to make sure that there are no leaks and that the pipes and hoses are in good condition. The vehicles brakes will be looked at, with an efficiency test taking place to view their performance, along with a check of their condition. Your tyre condition, tread depth, security, and size are also checked by the MOT testers.

These are just a few of the important items covered by an MOT but you can see a full list of checks on Gov.uk’s Car Parts Checked at an MOT article.

We provide MOT testing for all makes and models of cars and light commercial vehicle, with prices starting from £45.

Pre-MOT Check

If you’re unsure whether your vehicle will pass it’s MOT, there are a considerable amount of checks that you can do yourself to minimise the likelihood of your vehicle failing the test. Some of these include checking your tyres, lights, registration plate, seat belts, mirrors, wipers, washers, and your windscreen, however further information on carrying out these checks can be found on the What Car? Top 10 Pre-MOT Checks guide.

Alternatively, if you give our Leicester based team a call, we can arrange for someone to take a look at your vehicle prior to the test taking place.

Your MOT test can take place up to a month before the expiry date on your current MOT certificate. Call today on 0116 223 7700 or get in touch via our online contact form to book your vehicle in for an MOT in Leicester.
