What is an MOT?

An MOT is an annual check to assess your car’s safety and roadworthiness


What’s involved
in an MOT?

The full list of what is covered is here. Just bring your car to us and we’ll do the rest. We are qualified and approved by the DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency, previously known as VOSA). We’ll carry out the checks and let you know if there is anything to be concerned about.

How much will it cost?

Please call for the latest cost based on your make and model of car.

How long will it take?

An MOT takes between 45 – 60 minutes. For your convenience, you might prefer to drop your car off in the morning and collect it later.


What should I do now?

Book your car in with Mike Smith Cars. We will take care of your MOT providing you with any advice you need if there is anything to be concerned about. You can trust us to look after your whole family’s cars – bring them to us and we’ll make sure everyone’s car is well-looked after, reliable and safe.

What happens if I don’t have an MOT certificate?

The penalties for not having an MOT certificate can be quite severe. You could get a £1000 fine and you won’t be able to pay your road tax. It will probably also mean your car insurance is invalid which could mean penalty points and an inability to claim.


Do I still need a service?

Yes. MOTs are visual inspections only so you still need a more in-depth check that your car is performing as it should. We provide cost-effective options for servicing your car, see for yourself here.
