Sopley Garage – MOT testing and servicing

Testing, testing…

A current MOT test certificate is a legal requirement for almost all vehicles on UK roads which are over three years of age. Without an up to date MOT test certificate, your car insurance is invalid and you can face expensive fines if you do use your vehicle, not to mention the potential costs associated with a breakdown.

An MOT test assesses all of the major parts of your vehicle, in order to ensure that it’s safe to be on the road. The test ensures that your car meets all legal requirements for roadworthiness, as well as keeping it efficient and safe for your continued use.

If an issue is noted that needs to be addressed, we will liaise with you in order to reduce unnecessary delays and avoid unnecessary extra costs. We will also advise you of any advisory notes, indicating that future issues and associated work is likely, and if required we are happy to put in the extra work to make this a far less probable occurrence.

1, 2, 3.

We offer class 4 MOT testing on site, with a range of packages to suit you. Our MOT test covers the essential safety and maintenance checks to keep your car safe and road legal, whilst our interim service and MOT test keeps your car running at its best all year round.

For drivers covering longer distances regularly or just motorists who want to be sure their car is on top form, we would recommend a full service alongside your MOT test. As well as meeting the basic criteria for being road legal and safe, our full service will check for any minor issues which may become major problems in the future.

Whilst breakdowns and other mechanical issues can’t always be avoided, having your vehicle regularly serviced is a good step (or drive) in the right direction. Annual or 6 monthly servicing can help to prevent small problems becoming expensive ones, as well as letting you get from A to B safe in the knowledge that your car is running efficiently.

For those unfortunate occasions when the annual MOT and regular servicing did not prevent a mechanical failure or other problem, we are more than adequately equipped to help. Alongside our top level diagnostics equipment, we have decades of experience and knowledge relating to general repairs.

Servicing with a smile

As well as repairs and recovery, we also offer MOT testing and interim, full and extended servicing. Our broad range of experience means we are confident working on any make or model of car and light commercial vehicle, ranging from brand new, top-of-the-range performance cars through to classic and vintage vehicles.

We are able to undertake car servicing in line with manufacturer warranties, whilst for vehicles which are no longer within warranty, we will offer the same, comprehensive servicing regardless. We are confident that the servicing and MOT testing we offer is of a very high standard but without the costs associated with main dealers.

As members of The Motor Ombudsman and Trading Standards ‘Buy with Confidence’, we carefully adhere to the Motor Industry Codes of Practice to guarantee quality services for our customers. When servicing your vehicle we will always provide a checklist, allowing you to ensure that we have undertaken only essential work and that we have done so at a nationally acceptable standard.

Please book online now for your service, MOT test or both.
