Book MOT Test Check for my Mazda

Matsuda Kabushiki-gaisha - better known as Mazda - is the Japanese car manufacturing giant behind many beloved models, such as the MX5, 323, 626, Mazda 2, CX-3 and CX-5. We understand you want to protect and maximise the value of your Mazda. It's natural when booking an MOT for your Mazda, to look for a garage you can trust. Our team at Protyre is regarded as one of the UK's leading motor service garages and tyre fitters.

Following changes to the Block Exemption laws in 2003, you are entitled to complete your Mazda MOT, service and repairs with an independent garage such as ours, without voiding your original warranty. Whether you're looking for a CX-5 MOT or an MOT for any other Mazda model, we offer an MOT tailored to your vehicle, in line with dealer standards, but for a much more affordable price. The Protyre team is passionate about cars; we are the traditional, trusted and skilled garage you can rely on to look after your car.

Investing in a vehicle such as the Mazda MX5, 323, 626, Mazda 2, CX-3 or CX-5 is one crucial element towards the comfort and safety of you and your loved ones. Many of the issues behind a car failing an MOT are quick fixes that you can check and stay on top of to improve the general safety and performance of your Mazda. The Driver Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) recently released their MOT figures for 2015-2016, revealing that a colossal 36.3% of vehicles fail their MOT, and, even after repairs, the final figure remained high at 27.5%. A shocking 1,830 road accidents last year were caused by unroadworthy vehicles.

Here are our top 5 recommendations to help keep your Mazda in tip-top MOT ready condition.

  1. Check your windscreen for damage and items obstructing driver vision. There should be nothing attached to your windscreen within the windscreen wiper sweep area. Any windscreen damage greater than 40mm will fail an MOT.

  2. If your car doesn't have enough fuel and engine oil to complete emission tests, your Mazda could be ineligible for its MOT.

  3. Make sure your number plate is clean and conforms to DVLA regulations.

  4. Test your seatbelts to see if they perform as expected. See how they respond if yanked suddenly. This will indicate their ability to operate effectively when the car brakes suddenly.

  5. Sound your car horn to see if it works properly. If it's faulty, it must be repaired or replaced.
