MOT Preparation

Is your car’s next MOT test due soon?

And do you live in or near near Hoyland (Tankersley, Birdwell, Worsbrough, Blacker Hill, Jump, Hemingfield, Wombwell, Brampton, Elsecar, Brampton, Bierlow, Hood Hill etc.)?

Do not let the inspection stress you and let us prepare your vehicle well for the MOT test.

Because also for the MOT, proper preparation is half the work. And you can also save money.

These are the Top 5 MOT failure points:

  • Tyres with insufficient profile
  • Faulty/incorrect lighting
  • Too low tyre pressure
  • Damaged windshield wipers
  • Brake problems

Maybe you can check and even sort out some of these points yourself, but not everybody has the time and know-how to do it. Therefore we are offering this special MOT preparation service:

1 Lighting

All lamps must function properly, both front and rear.

We test your headlights, direction indicators, reversing lights and brake lights. Not to forget the number plate lighting.

2 Tyres

We check that all four tyres have more than 1.6 mm profile. We have the right devices (profile depth gauge and Tread Wear Indicator) to measure your tyres.

Is the tread depth less than 1.6 mm, then your car would unfortunately not pass the MOT, even if it’s only at one tyre with less tread.

This legal minimum profile depth does not apply to your spare tyre. A spare tyre with sufficient profile is recommended, but not mandatory.

Our team will thoroughly check whether your tyres are damaged on the outside as this can also lead to rejection of your car.

3 Windshield wipers and windshield washer

Your windshield wipers and windscreen washer must function properly.

If there are any issues, we will sort it out for you quickly.

4 Doors

All doors must be able to open and close properly. Both inside and out.

This also applies to your bonnet and boot lid.

5 Fuel cap

Is your car equipped with a fuel cap? Then it must also be present during the inspection. Because this too is a test requirement.

6 Mirrors

There must be no breakage or weathering in your interior and exterior mirrors.

7 Exhaust

We will inspect your car’s exhaust system thoroughly to make sure there are no leaks etc. (another rejection point).

8 Warning lights

We check the orange warning lights on your dashboard.

Are these going on and off when you start your car? Then it will be alright!

Does a light remain on? We will have a look at what is causing it and sort it out for you

These were only a few of the things we check in your vehicle before you take it for the MOT test.

We will make sure; your car will pass the test without any problems.

Why not combine the MOT pre-check with your annual service?

This would make you save plenty of time and money and will give you peace of mind for another year...

If you have any questions or would like to make a booking, please call us or just come to see us at our Challenger Tyres & Exhausts workshop in Hoyland.

We are looking forward to seeing you soon.

Not only in Hoyland, we are now also offering MOT to the nearby areas of tankersley, birdwell, worsbrough, blacker hill, jump,hemingfield, wombwell, brampton, elsecar, brampton bierlow and hood hill.
