Vehicle MOT

As your car reaches three years of age it is a legal requirement to have an annual MOT inspection.

As you probably already know, all cars over 3 years old are required by law to undergo an annual MOT inspection. All our sites have MOT test stations and are fully qualified to both carry out the test and undertake any repairs that may be necessary. 

What is an MOT?

The MOT is a compulsory annual test for every vehicle over 3 years old. It checks that your car is roadworthy and complies with key safety and environmental requirements. 

What are the key areas that are looked at during an MOT?

Number plate lights, horn, steering, suspension, wheels, brakes and tyres, windscreen, windscreen wipers and washer bottle, seats and seatbelts, fuel system Emissions, Bodywork, doors and mirrors.

When does my car need an MOT?

Once the car is 3 years old it will need an MOT every 12 months. The car can be brought in up to one month before the date of expiry as shown on the MOT certificate.

Why should I choose SLM to carry out my MOT?

If your car does fail its MOT, SLM is best placed to help. Our highly-trained  technicians will be able to carry out any repairs using genuine  parts and their intimate knowledge of your car. They will also know if the part is covered by a Safety Related Recall and this may mean that you pay nothing for the repair

What happens if my car fails the MOT?

If your car does fail the MOT, you will be issued with a VT30 certificate that states the reason for failure. You will also be eligible for a free re-test if the car is repaired at the same SLM test centre.

So why not book in with SLM Vauxhall for MOT's in Hasting and Tunbridge Wells, covering the counties of Kent and Sussex
