MOT services introduced for Poole residents

Vehicle owners across the Borough of Poole will be able to benefit from the services of the new MOT bay at Hatchpond Depot, which is now open for bookings.

The MOT team will be offering a transparent and independent service to all customers, with a full MOT costing just £40 per test for vehicles in classes 4, 5 and 7.

Bookings can be made between 8am and 5pm Monday to Friday, with customers able to choose to wait with their vehicle or leave it safe in the care of the MOT team and collect it up to 6pm the same evening.

Cllr Xena Dion, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for a Prosperous and Sustainable Poole, Borough of Poole, said: “We're delighted to be introducing the new service, which is a really innovative way to make a high quality council facility available to local residents, who we hope benefit from the highly skilled and professional team working at the MOT station. The Council do not offer a repair service, so people who have been subject to garage services wanting to sell additional work during an MOT can be assured of a purely objective inspection of their vehicle. We hope to see many residents taking advantage of the new service.”

As the team at Hatchpond is unable to undertake vehicle repairs, customers using the new service will receive entirely unbiased results. Should their vehicle fail, they will be provided with details of only the repairs needed to ensure that the vehicle will pass any retest, which they can then take to their preferred mechanic.
