Is your Vehicle's MOT due?
MOT’s are mandatory for all cars 3 years or older and during the first lockdown, the DVLA issued a notice to extend MOT certificate validity for up to 6 months. This was to help those who physically couldn’t get to the garage because they were shielding or otherwise incapacitated.
When this was brought to an end, the laws of unintended consequences kicked into action, as everybody rushed to book their vehicles in for the compulsory annual test and found that it wasn’t as easy to get an appointment as it had been pre-lockdown!
Our service department has been working hard to get through the backlog of urgent MOTs and are pleased to report that we are still taking bookings. Which means that if your car is due it’s MOT this month, we are confident that we will be able to fit you in. However calling around a month early will guarantee you an MOT test being completed before your previous one expires. Fortunately the latest November lockdown guidelines allow us to continue operating our Covid-Secure service department and MOT testing at full capacity.
If you’re not sure whether you are due for an MOT, we can help you find that out too. If you think you will struggle to get your car to us please let us know and we can arrange for one of our drivers to collect it from your home. We will carry out the MOT and go through the results with you over the phone. If there is work required to bring it up to the required standards to pass we will let you know what your options are, and whilst there is no obligation to have us do the work we would be happy to do so whilst we have it in the garage.
To find out about when your MOT is due or to book a test please call us on 0121 472 7139.
