As an authorised testing centre, Freeway Autos offer comprehensive MOT testing services to ensure that your vehicle meets the required standards.

What is MOT Testing?

MOT (Ministry of Transport) testing is an annual examination that assesses the roadworthiness, safety, and environmental standards of vehicles in the United Kingdom. It is mandatory for all vehicles that are over three years old, ensuring they meet the legal requirements for driving on public roads.

Why is MOT Testing Important?

MOT testing plays a crucial role in maintaining the safety of both the driver and other road users. It ensures that vehicles are roadworthy, minimising the risk of accidents caused by mechanical failures. Additionally, MOT testing also helps in reducing harmful emissions, contributing to a cleaner and greener environment.

What Does an MOT Test Include?

During an MOT test, our skilled technicians will inspect various components of your vehicle, including:

  • Vehicle Identification: The registration plate, Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), and other essential details are checked to ensure they comply with the legal standards.
  • Lights and Electrics: All lights, indicators, brake lights, and other electrical components are inspected for proper functioning and alignment.
  • Steering and Suspension: The steering system, including the steering wheel, column, and suspension components, are checked for wear, damage, and proper alignment.
  • Brakes: The braking system, including the brake pads, discs, drums, and hoses, is examined to ensure they are in good condition and provide effective stopping power.
  • Tyres and Wheels: The condition, tread depth, and inflation pressure of the tires, as well as the overall condition of the wheels, are assessed for safety and roadworthiness.
  • Exhaust and Emissions: The exhaust system is inspected for leaks, excessive noise, and emissions, ensuring compliance with environmental regulations.
  • Fuel System: The fuel tank, fuel lines, and fuel cap are examined for leaks and proper functioning.
  • Bodywork: The overall condition of the vehicle’s bodywork, including the doors, mirrors, and seats, is checked for safety and security.
