MOT & Service

At John Charles Auto we want to keep your car running smoothly. With our MOTs and servicing, you can keep your vehicle in the very best condition possible.

MOT

MOT testing is a legal requirement for all vehicles over 3 years old, to ensure that your car meets the minimum safety requirements. Without a valid MOT, your car insurance and road tax become invalidated and your car is not road legal.

At John Charles Auto, we can arrange MOT testing for you and fulfil both your car servicing and MOT testing requirements.

MOT Check List

MOT testing requires a qualified tester to carry out a range of different tests and inspections on the interior and exterior of your vehicle, including under the bonnet and underneath the vehicle, including:

  • Interior Checks
  • Exterior Checks
  • Under Bonnet
  • Under Vehicle Inspection
  • Electronic Tests

To book your MOT, call John Charles Auto today.
