Does my car need an MOT check?

If your car has been on the road for in excess 3 years since it was new, you are obligated by the UK law to possess a current MOT document for the vehicle.

An MOT check, which is short for Ministry of Transport test, is needed to be performed on your car once annually by a certified MOT tester to make sure that your car meets minimum safety standards laid out by the DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency ).

If your MOT document has expired then it is not legal to drive the vehicle on the road. Also take note that you can’t renew road tax without a current MOT certificate.

You don’t have to leave your MOT test to the expiry date shown on your existing MOT document, you can get your vehicle tested 28 days before this date.

What does an MOT test involve?

An MOT check involves a DVSA accredited tester checking and conducting an extensive series of tests on your car. The inspections are performed on the inner parts and exterior, including in the engine bay as well as the underneath of the vehicle to make certain that it’s in a safe and roadworthy condition. Please take note that a MOT is not the same as having your car serviced – an MOT is simply to make sure the car is in roadworthy state while servicing maintains the general mechanical condition.

If all the tests carried out on the vehicle throughout the MOT test are successfully passed you will be issued with a pass certificate (VT20). If the specialist is satisfied that your vehicle is in a safe state it will pass the MOT test.

Please note that the expiry date on your new MOT document is twelve months from the expiration date on your old certificate, not twelve months from the day of your vehicle successfully passing the test.

You might be provided with some advisory items advising of parts on your car that are showing deterioration and may call for attention in the near future. If at all possible, any advisory items noted on the certificate should be looked at by your mechanic and possibly repaired if needed before your next MOT test.

If your car fails the MOT then its condition has been judged unsafe for road use by the specialist. You will be given a VT30 failure document and provided with a rundown of the items that caused the vehicle to fail the test. We will then talk with you about the necessary repairs needed to make your vehicle safe and also you can book the vehicle in for the repairs to be carried out and re-tested.

If You Are Looking For The Best Local MOT Tester Look For These Qualities

Customers are one of the most vital tangible assets any business can have. To maximise this tangible asset’s potential, businesses should make their customers the center of their business techniques. Every interaction should leave the customer feeling positive about the experience. When considering possible service providers, try to choose one that has a reputation for treating its customers very well.

You could tell a lot about how a MOT tester treats its workers and customers by the values it espouses. The services offered and dress code can provide you with important insight into how the MOT tesing station functions. Whether you are thinking about working for the MOT garage or hiring the MOT tesing station to do work for you, how the MOT tester treats people is a great indication of its commitment to excellence. It’s worth learning as much as you can about a MOT tesing station’s operations before you agree to work with or for it.

You need to understand your service provider has top dollar integrity. Businesses that conduct their business in an ethical manner don’t skimp on quality or pad their bills. Ethical companies also correct any blunders without expense to their customers.

The very best businesses listen to customers and enable them to be heard. Listening is very critical in building lasting relationships with the customers. By communicating frequently with customers, you’ll have the ability to keep them satisfied and continue to build your business.

Companies invested in maintaining a good reputation work hard to make good first, second, and third impressions on their customers. Therefore, they try hard to provide the highest quality at an affordable price. Recommend a business that has done a good job for you to friends and coworkers. Conversely, don’t recommend a business that provides mediocre work in exchange for low prices.

If you ever need a reliable MOT tester to plan an event you want to throw, choose the one that has the best reputation around town. You should spend some time online reading reviews on the MOT tesing station. Local chambers of commerce may also have the ability to give you excellent information.

Businesses ought to be grateful for the trust their customers have in them. Growing customer relationships is a continuous process of determining and meeting customers’ needs and expectations. You need to avoid stepping back or losing customers if at all possible.

Avoid hiring businesses that are not bonded or insured. That way, whether or not the MOT tester fails to finish the project, your investment is protected. Have peace of mind while a business completes a significant project for you by hiring merely a business that’s fully insured and bonded.

Director / The Premium Bakery

I chose Meadowfield due to the offer of bonus Tesco points, however now that I have had experience of service from this family run business, I would most certainly not hesitate to use them in the future. I was attended to by a polite, courteous mechanic and was offered either to wait for the tyres to be replaced or to come back within a short time. I chose the first and sat in their bright, little cabin while the job was carried out. Every now and again someone popped in, always with a friendly smile. After about 40 mins, another friendly face came in to tell me the job was finished and I was ready to go – not only new tyres fitted but also ‘perfectly balanced! Excellent customer service. Thank you Meadowfield, one very satisfied customer here.
