MOT Saffron Walden
As Saffron Waldens MOT Test Station we can MOT Class IV petrol and diesel vehicles while you wait or you can leave your car with us. All of our MOT testers are fully trained and certified by VOSA.
We can also carry out any repairs needed to ensure your car passes its MOT – from welding to simply replacing a bulb.
MOTs check that your vehicle meets road safety and environmental standards. It is a legal requirement for anyone with a car over three years old. If you are caught without one you could be prosecuted.
Why do I need to get an MOT?
Anyone with a car over three years old needs a valid MOT certificate by law. If your car does not have one you could face a £1,000 penalty and you will be unable to renew your road tax.
It will also invalidate your car insurance and therefore any claims you may need to make in the future. You also could risk having points added to your driving licence.
Is mine due?
An MOT is due annually. Once we have carried out an MOT on your car you will automatically get a reminder four weeks before your next test is due.
Should I book early?
You can bring your vehicle in up to one calendar month before the MOT is due without losing any time from your previous certificate.
