M.O.T. Testing

Free MOT Retest

At A.M Autos we will do a Free MOT retest up to a month after the original test.

Just bring it back after you have made the repairs, and we will put it through the full MOT test completely free of charge.

Again this is useful for older cars, when you are not sure whether it is worth repairing or replacing your car.

What the MOT test includes

The MOT looks at some important items on your car to see that they meet key legal requirements at the time of the test.

Components to be inspected

  • Body or vehicle structure and general items
  • Fuel system
  • Exhaust emissions
  • Exhaust system
  • Seat belts
  • Seats
  • Doors
  • Mirrors
  • Load security
  • Brakes
  • Tyres and wheels
  • Registration plates
  • Lights
  • Bonnet
  • Wipers and washers
  • Windscreen
  • Horn
  • Steering and suspension
  • The vehicle identification number (VIN)

MOT Certificates

Where your vehicle is tested on or after the 16th of October 2011 you will receive a new style of MOT certificate.

This will be printed on plain paper in a landscape format instead of a pre-printedcoloured form. Changes to the certificates are part of an ongoing drive to reduce costs and wastage. Click here for a sample certificate.


Replacing lost or damaged MOT certificates

If you have lost or damaged your certificate, you can get a duplicate from any MOT testing station.

You’ll need to provide the vehicle registration mark and either the original MOT test number, or V5C document reference number - this can be found on the registration certificate (V5C).

The official maximum fee for a duplicate certificate for a car is £10.


Tip: If you hear a noise

If you hear a noise and it doesn’t sound right when you turn you might have a broken spring, shock absorber, worn ball joint or track rod end. I’ve had springs break then they have touched the tyres, causing them to pop.

So if you do hear those noises, it does pay to check. And that’s something we don’t charge for anyway. If you’re coming in with a noise, We don't charge you just to look at it and listen to the noise.

Quite often we just go out, check it, say what it is, then the customer can decide if they want it done or if it will last until its next service is due.
