Car MOT available at Tyre Exchange Billingham
If your car is aged between 3 and 40 years, it should be tested annually. At Tyre Exchange Billingham, we follow the guidelines for MOT testing which includes an extensive checklist covering an ever-increasing range of components.
An MOT certificate is a legal requirement to drive your car on the open road if it is three years old or more. The fine for driving without a valid MOT is £1000 and you won’t be able to renew your road tax until you get one. You’ll almost certainly invalidate your insurance which carries a penalty of 6-8 points and any claims you make will be invalidated. So, it pays to keep on top of your MOT.
This is a visual check only and ensures that your car is roadworthy and safe to drive. You will still need to keep on top of servicing, especially if your car fails and needs repairs. There are around 600 reasons for an MOT failure so it pays to keep your car fully serviced so that you stand the best chance of passing first time.
