If your car is 3 years old or over, it is a legal requirement to have an MOT test. Our MOT centre in South Croydon can perform this annual check to make sure your vehicle meets the minimum road safety standards as set by the Ministry of Transport.
Our fully trained and highly experienced car mechanics offer superior standard MOT testing at highly competitive prices, and will thoroughly check and assess every aspect of your car that is required to meet a certain standard in order to pass.
The MOT certificate
The MOT test has been designed to ensure that all motor vehicles meet a number of standard requirements, including road safety requirements and environmental emission standards. An MOT test is not required by a vehicle unless the car is either older than 3 years old or being used as a taxi.
Our test will conclude with the issuing an MOT certificate verifying at the time of test, the vehicle met standards set by road safety standards required by law.
The issue of an MOT certificate confirms the vehicle which has been through the most reliable Croydon MOT Testing is roadworthy at the time of the examination and not throughout the twelve months the document is valid for. The MOT document does not guarantee the condition of your car or of the gearbox, clutch or engine.
The mechanical condition of the vehicle is not guaranteed by this certificate. The certificate tells you that an MOT pass result has been registered on the VOSA (vehicle & Operator Services Agency) database of MOT Test results.
MOT testing procedures
The procedure undertaken during the premier level of Croydon MOT Testing takes in a series of inspections that checks your vehicle is roadworthy. These checks are crucial to ensure that the vehicle is safe and meets the standards set by VOSA. Important items of your vehicle are examined and accessed and a final report document is produced.
If all required safety requirements are passed you are issued with a MOT certificate which is valid for 12 months. A failure is supported with a document often referred to as a fail sheet which itemises the failures that need repair.
