MOT Test Peterborough

Our MOT Testing in Peterborough

An MOT test is something that every vehicle has to go through once it’s over three years old. It’s designed to ensure that the vehicle is in good working order and is safe to be on the road, not only for yourself but for other road users as well. Here at Vital Vehicle Care we are your Peterborough MOT experts and you can rest assured that your vehicle is in safe hands.

You can get your vehicle tested one day short of a calendar month prior to the expiry date, effectively providing you with a 13 month MOT.

We can test your vehicle while you wait. Usually this will take between 45 minutes and 1 hour, and we have a comfortable waiting area with refreshments to make the time fly by.

Once your test is complete, we will inform you if there were any faults or weaknesses that were identified.

If you’re unlucky this time around and your car doesn’t pass its test, we have courtesy cars available for you to use while your own vehicle is repaired and retested.

So, if you are looking to book MOT test Peterborough or are unsure of when your car’s MOT expires, give our friendly team a call today.

We've been going to vital vehicle care for a long while. The whole family takes their cars. My Dad who has stage 4 cancer and is struggling to get around called a little while ago. As we live close by a very nice lady offered to come collect the car for an MOT and even brought the car back to my parents. We just wanted to say how much we appreciate this kind gesture. Your kindness means a lot to us. Thank you. Give this garage as much support as you can!! They have always gone above and beyond.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if I don’t know when my MOT test is due?

The date your MOT runs out should be printed on your current certificate. If you’ve already booked a test with us but forgot the date or time, get in touch with us.

Do I need any documents for an MOT?

If possible, bring both your previous year’s test certificate and V5C Vehicle Registration Document. If you can’t find either of these, please contact us, and we will be happy to assist.

My MOT has expired, can I drive my car to the garage for the test?

If your vehicle does not have an up to date MOT certificate, you can only drive it to and from a pre-arranged test appointment. You can be fined up to £1,000 for driving a vehicle without a valid MOT.

What happens if I fail my MOT test?

You will be given a reason why your MOT failed. If necessary, make sure you book your car in for any remedial work and rebook your MOT. If you are having repairs done after failing the test, you will only be allowed to drive your car to a pre-arranged appointment.
