Your MOT TEST can be booked with GC Motors Service Centre up to 28 days before it’s due date.

Most people think that a service is just an MOT by another name and don’t expect new cars to have a paid check up twice yearly. However, the two actually perform very different functions.

A regular service is needed to take care of the car and the wear and tear of its parts and fluids. MOT Testing is a periodic technical inspection for safety – it is not designed to repair or replace worn vehicle components.

You are not being forced by taking your car to the garage twice a year. In fact, you need the two visits in tandem to have a healthy vehicle.

MOT Testing

If you have a question about MOT testing your vehicle, you may well find the answers below.

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.
Once you have booked your vehicle in for its MOT, remember to take your Vehicle Registration Document – often referred to as the ‘V5’ document – and a means of paying the current fee.

If the vehicle fails its MOT, it does not meet legal requirements and must be repaired to comply with MOT Test standards.

GC Motors Service Centre can advise you on the work that is required to pass the test and offer savings of up to 50% from main dealer pricing.

Normally you would drop off your vehicle in the morning and it will be ready to collect at the end of the same day, subject to it passing its MOT Test.
GC Motors Service Centre will have a driver available to take you to your home or place of work. Please let us know in advance if you require this.
