Car MOTs With Tameside Auto Centre

A full MOT is a legal requirement to drive on UK roads if your car is over three years old. Getting caught without one can lead to a fixed penalty notice of £100 or a fine of up to £1000. On top of that, if you’re involved in an accident without an MOT, it can invalidate your insurance, too.

Our MOT testing stations use the latest ATL technologies, and right now you can book in for an MOT & Service for just £99. We offer free collection and delivery of your car, a free courtesy car should you require it, and all our repairs use genuine dealer, or dealership quality parts, keeping your warranty intact.
