Slowly but surely, the country is starting to move again. And even though the Government has granted a 6 month extension to all vehicles requiring an MOT, it’s still your responsibility to ensure your vehicle is safe and roadworthy. As restrictions begin to lift, you never know when you might need your car to travel.
Don’t worry, strict guidelines have been put in place to ensure you, your vehicle and our teams are safe at all times and we’ll give your vehicle a thorough clean and disinfection before handing it back.
Vehicle MOT testing is required by law on all vehicles in the UK that are 3 years old or more. The annual inspection follows strict criteria set out by the DVSA that determines if your car is fit for purpose and in roadworthy condition. The MOT test covers a broad range of vehicle safety checks including lights, tyres, seatbelts and emissions and can only be carried out by an MOT garage with DVSA-approved examiners.
At Wilson and Co Vauxhall an MOT is more than just a yearly check your car has to go through. We give your vehicle a full health check whilst you relax in the comfort of our warm showroom with FREE tea, coffee and Wi-Fi whilst our service team keep you up to date with the progress of your vehicle. An MOT usually takes no longer than an hour to complete and if any work is required it will not be undertaken with out your prior permission.
Plus bringing your vehicle into the Co for an MOT is a great opportunity to check out the fantastic range of New Vauxhall cars in our showroom or even take one our for a test drive whilst you are waiting.
