MOT

Class 4 Vehicles (Car)

Hundreds of thousands of vehicles pass their MOT test every year with Halfords Autocentre. Our specialist ATA-trained testers can carry out almost all required repairs on site on the same day - and we always quote upfront so no nasty surprises!

The MOT will take an hour, but may take longer if we need to carry out any minor repairs. We ask that you arrive at least 5 minutes before your booked time, but you can leave your car with us any time from the moment we open.


Most vehicles need an MOT check and a new certificate every 12 months once they're 3 years old. If you've forgotten when yours is due you can check it online here:check MOT due date


We can test cars (class 4 vehicles), as well as vehicles between 3.0 and 3.5 tonnes, like pickups, vans and transits. See the full list of centres which carry out van MOTs: Class 7 MOT centres.

Unfortunately, we are not able to test motorcycles or 3-wheeled vehicles.


The MOT covers a wide variety of checks to ensure your vehicle is safe and meets environmental standards. See our MOT test checklist for full details.


Some of the most common MOT failures are down to small, avoidable factors like tyre pressure, windscreen wipers and light bulbs. By carrying out a few simple checks before you bring your car in, you could save the hassle of a retest. See our tips on how to pass your MOT first time.


If your vehicle is undergoing its first MOT then a V5C vehicle registration certificate (log book) is required, this document is also required if your vehicle has had a change of registration plate since its last MOT. In all other instances no documentation is required.


If your car fails, you will need to arrange for it to be repaired and retested. If you do not have a valid MOT certificate, you may not be able to legally drive your car on the road until these repairs have been made and a valid MOT certificate issued. Halfords can carry out most repairs on site at the test centre on the same day, but we will always advise you and obtain your agreement up front about any work that needs to be done.


If you wish to appeal against an MOT failure, ask for a complaint form at the test centre. You'll receive all or part of your test fee back if your appeal is successful, but you should not have any car repairs carried out in the meantime as this may affect the outcome of your appeal.
