Kinloss Garage company logo MOT for a classic car

Cars more than 3 years old must undergo an annual test of safety, road-worthiness and exhaust emissions – an MOT.

MOT testing centres are regulated by VOSA (Vehicle and Operator Services Agency) and our testers have been trained and certified.

When carrying out an MOT the tester follows the guidelines issued by VOSA.

The MOT covers lighting and signalling equipment, steering (including suspension), brakes, tyres and wheels, seat belts, bodywork, exhaust, fuel & emissions, and driver's view of the road (windscreen, wipers).


If you are unsure when your car's MOT is due, you can use this link 


An MOT takes about an hour and costs £54.85, but when booked with a full service, an MOT is at the discounted rate of £40.

You can sit in our waiting area where you can view the work being carried out on your car.


If your car fails the MOT the required repairs should be done and a retest carried out.

We can carry out the necessary repairs and retest your car.

We do not charge a retest fee, even if you choose to have your car repaired at another garage.

However if you have not had a retest within 10 working days, a full MOT test must be done again, at the full charge of £54.85.
