If you own a car there is a legal requirement to maintain it in a roadworthy condition. Once your car is 3 years old you must have an annual “health” check called a MOT test. This check up is to make sure that your vehicle meets set road safety and environmental standards.
Tower Garage is an approved MOT testing centre and our mechanics are trained and approved by DVSA (Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency), to carry out the test. Amongst those things checked are the lights, wipers/washers, exhaust emissions, wheels and tyres, seat belts, the horn, windscreen condition, the fuel system, steering and suspension and the vehicle structure for corrosion or damage.
TOWER GARAGE TIP
It is important to remember that the MOT test certificate says that the car has met the environmental and road safety standards that are required by law at the time of the inspection. It is not a guarantee of the condition of any of the mechanics of the car i.e. the gearbox, clutch or engine. It is also still your responsibility to maintain the car in a roadworthy condition throughout the full length of the certificate.
Although the MOT test is often seen as a time of imminent expense for the car-owner, it is important to remember that it is designed for the safety and benefit of all road users.
