We are an approved MOT testing station for both private and commercial vehicles. We offer a while you wait or by appointment service with no retest fee. We can offer an immediate estimate for any remedial work required.

You can take your vehicle for its next MOT up to a month before it is due. It is not widely known that the expiry date on your new MOT is 12 months from its expiry date of your old one. This means you can have an MOT that lasts 13 months.

When does my car need an MOT? Originally called the Ministry of Transportation test, an MOT is an annual examination of a vehicle that is three years old or more. The MOT tests both the safety of your vehicle and the level of emissions in the exhaust.

It is your responsibility to ensure that your vehicle is examined by MOT every 12 months. Without an MOT certificate, you cannot renew your road tax. Having a current MOT certificate is also a legal requirement in the UK. Nominated Testers are qualified to assess your vehicle against specific safety criteria and to pass it as acceptable and safe.

THE CROSS GARAGE MEETS THESE REQUIREMENTS. The acceptable standards are as recorded in the current Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) Vehicle Inspection Manual.
