Imperial Cars Northampton – The MOT Test

DVSA approved MOT test for our customers

Getting an MOT test can be a pain. This is why we help our customers by arranging a professional, approved MOT test for their car. We can arrange MOT testing for class IV vehicles to ensure that their car is roadworthy and safe. To take the extra hassle out of getting your MOT we always charge affordable prices and offer collection and delivery too.

Every car on the roads needs a valid MOT certificate in order to deem it legal and roadworthy. Without one, you can be subject to pay hefty fines. An MOT is due every year to keep you and your car safe. It’s a test that is set and monitored by the government agent, The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency. The test is a series of checks internally and externally on your car to make sure that it meets safety and environmental standards.

Getting your MOT conducted by an approved tester

Because the test is so rigorously monitored, each garage that offers an MOT needs to be approved by the DVSA themselves. This means that they have a nominated tester who goes through rigorous training each year to ensure your car is safe. We organise your car to be taken to an approved MOT test centre, so you have a legal and valid MOT certificate. Your MOT test will be conducted by a professional and qualified MOT tester who will comprehensively inspect your vehicle and make sure there are no issues.

MOT repairs and retesting

If your car does not get through its first MOT test, we will help provide a repair plan and accurate quote, so you know what needs to be done. It’s up to you if you would like to get the repairs done on your vehicle. With your approval, we’ll do the work only using original equipment parts and lubricants or equivalent quality that suits your vehicle. Once the work has been done, we’ll then organise a retest, which may be a partial retest depending on what has gone wrong. Then you’ll receive a valid MOT certificate and can be on your way. If there are any advisories to watch out for, you’ll be presented with a list of the problems, so you can monitor them and get them repaired when you can.

You can book your MOT up to 1 month before.

When it comes to getting your MOT completed on time, the government gives you a long window to get it done so you don’t miss the deadline. You can book your MOT test up to 1 month or 28 days before the due date. It means you can book in early and find a time that’s best and easiest for you. What’s more, you’ll get to keep your current MOT date for the next year, meaning you get 13 months MOT.
