MOT in Marlow - Tower Garage (Marlow)
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, this is called an MOT test. This check-up is to make sure that your vehicle meets the minimum set road safety and environmental standards.
Tower Garage (Marlow) is an approved MOT testing centre and our mechanics are trained and approved by DVSA (Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency), to carry out class 4 MOT tests. 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. You can check the expiry date of your MOT certificate here.
It is important to remember that the MOT test certificate says that the car has met the minimum 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.
