MOTs

If your car is three years old or over keep it safe and legal by getting it MOT'd every year.


Independent MOT vehicle testing of cars, light goods vehicles and diesels is available at a number of centres in the county.

Car, van and minibus drivers can get MOT tests and minor repairs done at our Ambergate, Brimington and Dove Holes workshops.

Motorcyclists can get the same services at the Ambergate site.

Minor repairs can also be carried out. These include adjustments to headlights, exhaust and brake testing, windscreen wiper and light bulb replacement and diagnostic testing to air conditioning and warning lights.

The cost of the MOT tests has also been reduced. For cars and light vans the charge is £40 − down from £54. For motorcyclists is now £28 instead of £29.
