MOTs

Mot

We have a modern MoT testing bay equipped with the latest roller brake testing to ensure the best possible service to our customers.

We employ fully qualified testers who will rectify any minor "niggles" free of charge on the spot. Should your bike fail the test on anything more major, we will be only too happy to advise you on the best way to rectify the faults and give you a quote for the carrying out of the work required. Unfortunately since MOT computerisation most re-tests now carry a charge of £14.85

The standard Ministry of Transport fee of £29.65 is charged for an MOT on a solo motorcycle and £37.80 if fitted with a sidecar.

Did you know?

MoT's can be made out up to 28 days before the expiry of the old certificate. The unexpired portion is then "added" to your new MoT certificate giving you up to 13 months MoT. This means that there is no disadvantage to bringing your bike in early and the advantage is that if it does fail first time you have got time to get it repaired.

As of 18th November 2012 vehicles registered before 1960 will be excempt from an annual MOT.

However,  there is still a legal requirement to maintain your vehicles in a safe and road-worthy condition. The new regulation doesn’t provide any loop-holes for driving a vehicle in an unsafe condition on Britain’s roads.

For your own peace of mind we are offering MOT's on pre 1960 motorcycles at a reduced rate £25 and £30 for a motorcycle fitted with a side car.
