An annual MOT Test is a requirement for all cars over three years old.

The test assures that your vehicle reaches the minimum safety & emissions standards required by law ­ keeping your car safe and environmentally friendly to drive.

It is important to remember that the MOT test is not a substitute for a proper vehicle service ­the test represents a snapshot of your vehicle's condition on the day of the test and is no guarantee that you won't encounter issues in the future.

To ensure your peace of mind, it's a good idea to get your vehicle regularly serviced alongside the annual MOT test.

Darnley Garage is an authorised DVSA testing station, so our specialist MOT technicians can carry out a comprehensive vehicle check to ensure that it meets the recommended safety standards.
