MOT Testing in Bishopsworth Explained

A major part of our work at 24/7 Auto Repairs, in addition to our car repair, vehicle servicing, clutch replacement and flywheel replacement services, is MOT testing. We are able to offer a full range of solutions for motorists in Bishopsworth and all surrounding areas in Bristol. Our garage is an authorised MOT testing facility approved by VOSA.


All of our inspectors go through frequent training to ensure that they are fully compliant with the individual aspects of an MOT test.

An MOT is an inspection to determine whether your vehicle is roadworthy or not. The test is only applicable to vehicles of 3 years or older and all motorists are legally obliged to present their car for an MOT inspection every year.

The test takes around 45 minutes and if the car passes the test, owners in Bishopsworth are presented with a certificate which allows them to drive on UK roads legally.


What’s included in the MOT test?


The MOT test is carried out using a series of observational and physical checks. These determine safety, emission and roadworthiness standards that establish whether your vehicle will pass or fail. Sometimes, we will notice things during an MOT test that won’t stop you passing but will be presented as an advisory at the end of the inspection.


Customers in Bishopsworth can expect our MOT tests to be conducted in a fair and transparent way. The same goes for our car repair, flywheel replacement and clutch replacement services.


The following elements make up part of the MOT test. We can provide a pre-MOT check on your vehicle by request. Should you vehicle fail an inspection, we can provide owners in Bishopsworth with a suitable car repair before providing a prompt re-test.


• Doors and Mirrors

• Exhaust and Emissions

• Fuel System Inspection

• Horn Check

• Lights and Indicators

• Registration Plate

• Seat and Seatbelt
