Here at JPA Motor Company, we specialize in MOT testing, car servicing and repairs. Providing expert advice and fully trained mechanics to make sure you get back on the road quickly. All our work carried is out to the highest of standards and fully guaranteed.
An MOT test certificate confirms that at the time of the MOT testing, without dismantling the vehicle, it met the minimum acceptable environmental and road safety standards required by law. It does not mean that the vehicle is roadworthy for the life of the certificate and the MOT test does not cover the condition of the engine, clutch or gearbox.
In order to have your vehicle MOT tested you must bring along your vehicles V5 document (log book). The list below shows the components that will be inspected to ensure they meet the minimum MOT testing requirements by law.
- Vehicle structure
- Fuel System
- Exhaust Emission
- Exhaust System
- Tyres and Wheels
- Steering and Suspension
- Vehicle ID Number
- Registration Plates
HOW LONG DOES THE MOT TEST LAST?
The MOT test takes up to 50 minutes to complete.
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY VEHICLE FAILS THE MOT TEST?
If your vehicle fails our MOT test then you need to get the failed components corrected before you can have a retest.
CAN YOU DO THE REPAIR WORK FOR ME?
If your vehicle fails the MOT test and needs repair work to meet the requirements of the MOT test, then if you wish we can do the repair work for you. We will endeavour to undertake the work needed on the same day.
HOW MUCH IS A RETEST?
A retest is free providing that the retest is carried out within 10 days of the original test and that the vehicle failed on minor items.
WHAT IF I DISAGREE WITH A TEST RESULT?
If you disagree with the test results then you can discuss it with us. If you are still not satisfied with the MOT test then you can contact the Vehicle and Operator Service Agency (VOSA)
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY VEHICLE PASSES THE MOT TEST?
If your vehicle passes the MOT test then you will be issued with the new computer-printed MOT certificate, which is your receipt for the MOT test and shows the information that will be held on the MOT database.
The MOT certificate (VT20) now has a peel off windscreen sticker to remind you of the MOT renewal date. The new certificate also shows if any additional work has been recommended. Details of any such work are included on a new Advisory Notice (VT32) which will be given to you at the time of the test.
Remember the MOT test is not a substitute for a proper and regular servicing. Passing the MOT test does not mean that your vehicle will remain safe for the following 12 months.
