MOT Bristol

MOT Vehicle Service StationMOT Testing

If your vehicle is 3 years or older you are required by law to have an annual safety check, the ministry of transport test, commonly known as the MoT Test.

The purpose of the MoT test is to ensure the vehicle meets the minimum safety level required by law.

Pass, fail and advisory documents explained: During the MoT test the designated tester, a person authorised by DVSA (formally VOSA) the governing body will conduct an inspection and a series of extensive checks around the vehicle in order to determine whether or not the vehicle is road worthy according to the DVSA’s requirements.

The result of each check is recorded by the tester and if the vehicle passes a ‘pass’ certificate is issued.

If the vehicle fails to meet the required standard a ‘failure’ document is instead issued, items that are not quite deemed a failure, but worth mentioning to you so you can keep an eye on them are drawn to your attention as ‘advisory’ items.

It is your responsibility to ensure your vehicle is examined every 12 months.


Without a current MoT certificate, you will be unable to legally drive your vehicle or renew your road fund license.

The penalty for not having an up to date MoT certificate could be a fine. Also if the vehicle is involved in an accident any potential insurance claim could be affected by the absence of your MoT.

Needed 4 new tyres for my trailer, these guys were outstanding in every way, right from the first phone call very helpful, polite and friendly – not like some of the other garages I’ve had experience with as a young woman.

Romel Bumagat

Ive been driving for 17 years and have visited countless garages across the South West. I took my Corsa in today and can honestly say that these guys are by far the best. The service I received was friendly, professional and honest. They also explained the problems I had in a jargon free manner and went above and beyond in helping me. Thoroughly recommended.
