What's an MOT?

An MOT (Ministry of Transport) test is an annual inspection to ensure that your vehicle meets the legal standards of safety and environmental performance. It's a crucial aspect of vehicle ownership, aiming to keep our roads safe and reduce environmental impact.

It's important to note that we do not open up the car for internal inspections during an MOT – it's purely a visual check.

However, we are often able to replace small parts like bulbs and windscreen wiper blades to have you pass your MOT first time, without retesting.

If you need to check your vehicle's MOT status, please give us a call, and we'll tell you when your MOT is due, so you can get it booked in and avoid being fined up to £1000.

What'Checked in an MOT?

Our MOT testing at McMullen Motors is a thorough visual examination. We inspect various components of your vehicle to ensure they meet the required standards set by the DVSA.

Key areas of inspection include:

  1. Lights and Indicators: We check the functionality and alignment of all lights and indicators.

  2. Tyres and Wheels: Examination of tyre condition, tread depth.

  3. Brakes: Inspection of brake performance and wear.

  4. Suspension: Checking for wear and tear on the suspension system.

  5. Exhaust Emissions: Ensuring your vehicle meets environmental standards.

  6. Seat Belts: Verifying the condition and functionality of seat belts.

  7. Windscreen and Mirrors: Assessing the visibility and condition of your windscreen and mirrors.

Important Note: All MOT testing is a visual inspection, and we do not open up the car for internal examinations. We focus on assessing the external components to guarantee your vehicle complies with legal standards.
