The MOT test is a mandatory annual check to determine whether your vehicle meets strict roadworthiness and emissions standards set by VOSA. Here at AZ Autos in Hitchin, our VOSA approved testers can carry out MOTs on cars, motorbikes and light commercial vehicles.
All UK vehicles three years and older require an MOT test, which can be carried out up to 28 days prior to the expiry date of the current certificate. Once your vehicle has passed the MOT test, you will receive a certificate valid from the date of expiry of your existing MOT certificate.
Please note that once your MOT test certificate has expired, the only journey permitted is to an MOT test station for a pre-booked MOT test.
The MOT certificate does not guarantee that the vehicle will remain roadworthy, so we always recommend that motorists do basic checks on tyres, oil/fluid levels, windscreen wipers and lights. An MOT is not the same as a service, and does not cover the condition of the engine, therefore it is vital to service your vehicle regularly.
An MOT will typically take an hour. You are welcome to wait in our comfortable waiting room while your vehicle is tested, or we do have an MOT test viewing area. Alternatively, you can leave your vehicle with us.
