Everyone who uses a vehicle on the road must keep it in a roadworthy condition. The MOT test checks that vehicles meet road safety and environmental standards. The first MOT test for a vehicle is required when it’s three years old and thereafter every 12 months. As an approved MOT testing centre, Riverside Garage are able to offer MOTs on all cars, motorbikes and also light commercial vehicles (up to 3 tonnes).
MOT tests can be carried at any time, but in order to gain 13 months on your MOT certificate you can have your MOT done up to one month (minus a day) before it is due and keep the same renewal date. The renewal date of your MOT can be found on your printed MOT certificate.
Our MOT testing is by appointment and can be carried out while you wait however we can usually accommodate vehicles for MOT at short notice and can provide you with a courtesy car if you have commitments. No certificate is needed as our administration process is now entirely computerised.
