We have re-introduced our MOT bay which is located at the Hatchpond Depot Workshops.

We offer a transparent and independent service for MOTs covering Class 4, 5 and 7 vehicles.

Our MOT team do not undertake subsequent repairs and therefore you can be confident of a totally unbiased test. Should your vehicle fail, you will be told only what is needed to ensure your vehicle will pass any retest.
