MOT Testing

Leeds MOT tests you can trust

MOT Service Center Crossgates Leeds

Every vehicle that has been licensed in the UK requires an annual MOT test once it has reached three years of age. The MOT test checks roadworthiness and determines (without dismantling) whether the vehicle in question meets the key minimum acceptable environmental and road safety standards required by law. The MOT must be undertaken by a VOSA-trained tester at an approved MOT testing station.

Fair and thorough testing by an in-house technician

Many garages send customers’ vehicles out to other auto centres for MOT testing. But Whitkirk Motors is an approved MOT testing centre. We take MOT testing very seriously and have a very experienced VOSA-approved technician who performs MOT tests in our designated testing bay. He is thorough, yet fair and checks the following for safety, correct operation and wear and tear/corrosion in accordance with regulations:

  • Lights
  • Steering & suspension
  • Washers & wipers
  • Windscreen
  • Horn
  • Seatbelts
  • Seats
  • Fuel system
  • Exhaust system
  • Exhaust emissions
  • Vehicle structure
  • Doors
  • Mirrors
  • Wheels & tyres
  • Brakes

Vehicle registration and licence plates

The test itself takes less than an hour and if all is well, we’ll give you an official signed and stamped MOT certificate. It is important to note that an MOT test certificate relates to the roadworthiness of the vehicle on that particular day. It is not a guarantee of the general mechanical condition of the vehicle.

No re-test fee

If for any reason your car or van does not pass, the tester will issue a failure document highlighting areas for improvement. If it’s something simple like new wiper blades or bulbs, we’ll generally replace them for you and issue a certificate. If it turns out to be something more serious such as brakes, steering, suspension or corrosion we’ll give you a call to discuss your options.

With our fully equipped garage and trained professionals, we can generally undertake the necessary work within 24 to 48 hours

Plus, we won’t charge a re-test fee if the repairs are carried out by us. Our MOT tests cost £56.00 – why not book yours today?
