Vehicles on UK roads over 3 years since manufacture are required to have a valid 12 month MOT Certificate.
An MOT inspection is an annual event, meaning a valid certificate must be renewed within the 12 month anniversary of its last certificate.
Did you know every MOT centre must provide a means by which you can watch your vehicles MOT test being completed?
In a bid to provide transparency of all our services at Ewood MOT and Service Centre, we have a dedicated waiting area where you can watch your vehicle MOT test taking place LIVE on the TV screens.
In the same way the DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency) strictly monitor vehicles, they also strictly monitor MOT Centres.
At Ewood MOT and Service Centre we are proud of our DVSA Green Certification. Very few garages in the Blackburn and Darwen area hold a Green MOT certification. Most are red or amber which means they do not follow best practice.
Is the safety of you, your passengers or the public worth the risk?
