MOT Testing

 

Welcome to our MOT Testing area. At French Diagnostic Services we carry out a full MOT on any vehicle for only £30! We recommend that you book your vehicle in for an MOT 28 days before the expiry just in case it fails on anything that will need time to repair.

An MOT is not the same as having your vehicle serviced and it doesn’t check a vehicles general mechanical condition. If you require a service please visit our Services page.

Please see below for information on MOT Testing and how to find out information of your vehicles MOT Status and History.

 Contact us to book your vehicle in for an MOT for just £30.

What is an MOT?

An MOT is required for vehicles that are older than three years. The law states that vehicles of this age must go through yearly roadworthiness checks. The MOT test makes sure that a vehicle meets the government’s road safety and environmental standards. If you drive a vehicle on the road you are responsible for keeping it in a roadworthy condition. You are able to renew your MOT up to a month before the expiry date shown on the pass certificate.

MOT Status of a Vehicle 

You can check the current MOT status of any vehicle online at the direct gov website. This might be one that you own already or a second hand vehicle that you are thinking of buying.

The online MOT status check gives you information about:

- The date of the last test

- Mileage on the vehicle at the time of the test

- The expiry date of the test

You can compare the online information against the paper certificate to make sure it’s genuine.
