MOT Testing by Simon Graeme, Hampsthwaite, Harrogate

Ensuring that your vehicle is safe enough to be roadworthy and meets environmental standards is essential to being able to drive on the roads; that’s why the MOT check, carried out by DVSA accredited staff, checks if your car complies with legal standards.

MOT tests checks a huge range of car features, such as tyres, emissions, lights, and brakes, and are carried out to the highest standard.

A valid MOT certificate is legally required and must be updated annually – so keep your vehicle safe, on the road and ensure you don’t get fined by booking your vehicle in for it’s MOT with us today.
