Come in for your MOT - Only £45.00 or £25.00 with a Full Service.
A full comprehensive service combined with an MOT reduces the MOT cost, because some of the procedure checks carried out within the MOT test are duplicated within the Full Service Schedule.
Never Miss An MOT:-
We value our customers and want them to stay on the right side of the law. We also
want you to return to us for your next MOT. So on an annual basis, we’ll send you a gentle reminder, one month before your current MOT expires, to say that your vehicle is due for testing.
Hammond Autoserv offers you services you can rely on.
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.
During the MOT test the nominated tester, a person authorised by the government body called VOSA
(Vehicle and Operator Services Agency) will conduct an inspection and a comprehensive series of
checks around the vehicle, including the interior, exterior, under the bonnet and under the
vehicle. The result of each check is recorded. If the vehicle passes a VT20 ‘pass’ certificate
is issued. If the vehicle fails to meet the required standard a VT30 ‘failure’ document is issued.
Items that are not quite a failure, but worthy of a mention 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 drive your vehicle lawfully or renew your road fund license.
Recent computerisation of the MOT testing system by VOSA means police and mobile camera units can
now check remotely to see if your vehicle has a current MOT.
The penalty for not having an up to date MOT certificate could be a fine. Also if the vehicle is
involved in an accident you may be asked to produce your MOT certificate. An insurance claim could
be affected by the absence of your MOT, especially in the case of injury.
