A reputation you can trust
MOT testing is required by law on all vehicles in the UK that are 3 years old or more. The annual inspection follows strict criteria set out by the DVSA that determines if your car is fit for purpose and in a roadworthy condition. The MOT test covers a broad range of vehicle safety checks including lights, tyres, seatbelts and emissions and can only be carried out by an MOT garage with DVSA-approved examiners. Here at GX we have the facilities to carry out MOT tests on all vehicle makes and models up to 3.5 tonne.
During the MOT test, the MOT tester will conduct a comprehensive inspection to ensure the vehicle is in roadworthy condition. However, it is not the same as having your vehicle serviced. And the MOT test does not check the general mechanical condition of the vehicle. Also, the assessment is based on the condition of the vehicle on the day.
If the vehicle passes, the nominated tester will separately list and inform you of any ‘advisory’ or ‘minor’ items that will require attention in the near future so you can keep an eye on them.
However, if your vehicle fails it’s MOT we will call you with a detailed quote explaining the failures and what work is required to get it to pass the MOT.
An MOT test takes 45 minutes to 1 hr. We have a customer friendly waiting room where you can wait for your MOT to be completed, or you can drop your vehicle with us and take one of our free courtesy vehicles so you can get on with your day. (Please note GX courtesy vehicles must be booked in advance)
Once we’ve carried out an MOT test on your vehicle, we will automatically add you to our text reminder system free of change and remind you a month before its due the following year.
If you’re unsure when your MOT is, and you can’t find your MOT certificate, please call us and we can find this information for you.
