Quality car MOT testing
At AutoCare Express, Witney, Oxfordshire, we offer a fast, professional MOT testing service. Our approved examiners will carry out a comprehensive inspection of your vehicle to make sure that it complies with the road safety and environmental regulations set out by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). An assistant examiner oversees all tests to ensure they are carried out correctly. You can book your vehicle in for a test any time within a month of the expiry date of your current MOT, and subject to your car passing the test, we’ll issue a new certificate to run for 12 months from the expiry date of your previous MOT.
Why do you need an MOT?
To drive any vehicle on a public road in the UK, it’s a legal requirement for it to have a valid MOT certificate. The only exceptions to this are when:
- You are taking your vehicle to a MOT test centre (you must have pre booked a test).
- You are driving your vehicle home after it has failed its test.
- You are taking the vehicle to be repaired after it’s failing its MOT test.
Driving without a current MOT certificate will invalidate your motor insurance and can lead to a heavy fine. Police services can access their database to check instantly whether a vehicle has a current certificate
