Your MOT is the annual check to make sure that your vehicle meets the UK standards for road safety and that it meets the environmental standards too. If you need an MOT in Glasgow, then we can help and ensure your car is always in a roadworthy condition and give you the best deal on our services.
Why Do I Need An MOT?
If your MOT is out of date, then it is illegal for you to drive that car. It is your responsibility to make sure that you get your MOT check before the expiry date. It’s worth remembering that you can bring your car in for an MOT test up to 28 days before the expiry date, and it will not change the date for the following year, so you can come back to our Glasgow garage at the same time next year and get a great deal on your MOT.
When Do I Need An MOT Test?
If your car is three years old or more, then you need to get an MOT once a year. If you are not sure when your next MOT is due, then you can use your registration number and vehicle make on the government tool.Check Due Date

What is checked during an MOT?
When you bring your car in for an MOT test with our leading Glasgow-based garage, we will give the vehicle a thorough check. The short answer to the question “what is checked in an MOT?” is “everything” because it is crucial to make sure that every element of the vehicle is working safely and securely. We will test your brakes, your steering, your suspension, your exhaust, and much more besides. If any of these elements are not working up to the legal standard, we can advise you on the best course of action and how much you could be looking at paying for repairs.
When it comes to exhaust, the emissions that your car creates will be measured against the legal limit. More recent models of cars are subject to more rigid standards than older ones, but it’s not all about black or grey smoke. If your exhaust is creating too much noise, then this could also lead to a failed test. When checking your vehicle, our Glasgow MOT experts will also look at any damage to your car’s body, specifically if there are any dents or weather damage that have created sharp edges. Remember that this could hurt a pedestrian or cyclist and will lead to a failed MOT. Excess rust damage may also be an issue, particularly when your vehicle is subject to the Glasgow weather.
Passenger safety is also a crucial element of the MOT test. Our Glasgow MOT experts will be checking that your doors, bonnet and tailgate all close and lock securely. Seatbelts will also be inspected to make sure that they are in good working condition.Check Availability
What Should I Check Before An MOT?
If you want to avoid failing an MOT and ensure your car meets the requirements, then remember that the most common causes of MOT failure are your light bulbs, headlamps, and poor tyre condition. Check your lightbulbs and headlamps regularly, and make sure that you are looking at the pressure of your tyres. The team at our leading Glasgow garage will be checking that the tyres are securely attached to your vehicle, and we’ll look at any damage, cracks, or cuts to them.
Getting your MOT can be stressful, but you can rest assured that our Glasgow-based experts will give your car a thorough check to ensure that you are safe and that your car can get back out on the road as quickly as possible.
