The MOT test is something that has been going on in the UK for the past 57 years. During its debut, in 1960, the test only considered a vehicle’s steering, lights and brakes and only vehicles more than 10 years old had to undergo testing. By 1967 the test dropped to vehicles three years old; however, tyres weren’t part of the inspection until 1977. —
During the year from 2014 to 2015, there were more than 29 million MOT tests done in the UK, with the largest class of vehicles being Class 3 and 4. In an effort to help drivers get the testing necessary, for an affordable price, Ireton Road Garage now offers comprehensive testing services.
“We understand that for some drivers the annual MOT test can be a bit of a hassle, especially if they maintain their vehicle throughout the year,” stated company representative Becky Nugent. “That’s why our goal is to make it as easy and hassle free as possible for anyone who brings their vehicle to us.”
The testers at Ireton Road Garage all undergo the rigorous testing process from the DVSA to ensure vehicles meet the highest standards. At the end of the inspection, customers are provided a MOT certificate that is good until the next year. Currently, Ireton Road Garage is considered a VOSA approved test center for any Class 4 vehicle, which includes small minibusses, vans, and cars.
“As mentioned before, our goal is to get customers in and out of the shop as quickly as possible,” continued Nugent. “Usually our testers can complete the process in just 45 minutes, but if minor repairs are needed, it can take up to an hour. We allow customers to wait, or come back and pick up their vehicle, making our services even more convenient for those who have busy schedules.”
